When rumours of Kamal Haasan's daughter Akshara changing her religion came to light
Rumours were that the youngest daughter of Kamal Haasan converted to Buddhism
Has Akshara Haasan converted to Buddhism? The internet seemed convinced that she had, thanks to all the rumours floating about.
Perhaps even more interesting was that apparently her father - Kamal Hassan - and she needed to have a 'heart to heart' chat on Twitter to address the rumours.
Akshara, who is the second daughter of famous actor Kamal Haasan, earlier had stated that she was an atheist. However, recently she expressed closeness to Buddhism. The actress said that she felt drawn towards the teachings and principles of Buddha.
This immediately drew rumours that she had converted to Buddhism.
Here is his tweet - "Hi. Akshu. Have you changed your religion? Love you, even if you have. Love unlike religion is unconditional. Enjoy life. Love- Your Bapu (sic)."
To which she replied - "Hi bapuji. No, still an atheist. Although i agree with budhism as it is a way of life and is an individuals way of life. Love from your daughter akshu (sic)."
At the press conference held in Chennai, Akshara opened up about her initial days as assistant director in Mumbai and how she grew interested in acting, like her elder sister Shruti Hassan. "As my father, mother and sister are totally into films, I would love to make a movie with all of them. But, only after I prove myself as a talented filmmaker," she added.
