Besides claiming herself as an atheist, Akshara Haasan, the second daughter of legendary actor Kamal Haasan, has most recently converted as a Buddhist. And the actress says she has a growing faith for Buddhism and spiritually inclined towards the religion.
Akshara, who made her onscreen debut with a Bollywood film Shamitabh, will next be seen with Tamil star actor Ajith in an upcoming film Vivegam. At the promotions of this film in Chennai, Akshara had a brief chat with media folks.
The Haasan girl discussed her initial days as assistant director in Mumbai and how she’s grown interest for acting in the later days, like her sister Shruti Hassan. She further says, ‘As my dad, mom and sister are totally into films, I would love to make a film with all of them. But, only after I prove myself as an able filmmaker.’
When Akshara was quizzed about her father Kamal Hassan’s political interests and whether he would join politics, she replied, ‘it’s up to him and I will not make any comment on it.’
