Akshara Haasan, the young heroine in the South film industry is following her sister Shruti Haasan’s footsteps by not using their father’s stardom in making a career for themselves. Akshara started her career as an assistant director and made her acting debut with the film Shamitabh. She was later seen in a few Kollywood movies and is currently working with Chiyaan Vikram’s next in her father’s production.
Shockingly, she has approached the Mumbai cops and cyber cell to complain against those who have leaked her private pictures on to the internet. Akshara Haasan said that she was deeply disturbed by this cheap act by unknown people and called that it was unfortunate to go through it when MeToo movement is making the things better. She called this as her MeToo story and issued a public statement.
“Recently, some of my private pictures were leaked on the Internet. Who did this or why is not known to me yet. But what I do know that it is deeply unfortunate to make a young girl the victim of such an act only for a pervert mind’s enjoyment. And each time someone shares it with eye-catching headlines to draw more traction, it scars me deeper and adds to everyone’s participation in my harassment and helplessness, It’s particularly disturbing and deeply upsetting to see that at a time when the nation has woken up to the #metoo movement, there are still people out there who would harass and attempt to share private pictures of a young girl in the public eye only to derive some perverse pleasure that appeals only to them. I have reached out to the mumbaipolice and the cybercell to seek their help in tracking the person/s responsible for this leak and hope to get to the bottom of this soon. Till then, I can only request that we all learn to live and let live with dignity and privacy and hope that the internet won’t continue actively participating in my harassment. #metoo.” Akshara Haasan said.
