By Subhash K. Jha
It's final. Kamal Haasan and Sarika's younger daughter Akshara Haasan who has studied music and filmmaking is also bitten by the acting bug.

Both her parents felt Akshara was more cut out for being behind the camera. And since the elder daughter Shruti was already an actress, Akshara's filmmaking potential would have nicely rounded off the family's creative ambit.

Akshara assisted Rahul Dholakia and the whole family thought she was heading towards a career in filmmaking. But then Balki spotted Akshara. He offered her a role in his new film. And Akshara took the plunge," says a friend of Kamal Haasan's family.

Interestingly, Akshara is paired with Dhanush in Balki's film. Dhanush is a dear friend of Akshara's sister Shruti,...
