AKSHARA IS THE THIRD HERO OF SHAMITABH
Sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush in your very first film is a tall order. But Akshara Haasan, who makes her debut with R Balki’s Shamitabh, took the challenge in her stride. Apparently , during the shooting of the film, the young actress remained unfazed and held her own in front of the two National Award winners. Of course, both Big B and Dhanush were impressed by her quiet confidence as well as her acting.

Says Balki, “Akshara plays a powerful role in the film. Tackling the two stars is no easy task for someone as young as her. She has the challenge of putting them in their place. And that is what we call the `hero’ in Bollywood.

Akshara stands shoulder to shoulder with Mr Bachchan and Dhanush, and never once was intimidated about shar ing screen space with them.“

Shamitabh, produced by Eros International and Hope Productions, releases February 6.
