Akshara Haasan, the daughter of Kamal Haasan and the sister of Shruti Haasan was in news headlines as her few private pics were leaked on the Internet and went viral on the social media. Akshara Haasan in her tweet confirmed that she is a victim of the cyber crime and has approached Mumbai police. She wrote on Twitter, “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.”

 Akshara Haasan again wrote, “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.”  She added,” 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 the private pictures of a young girl in the public eye only to derive some perverse pleasure that appeals only to them.”

Akshara Haasan further said, “I have reached out to the Mumbai police and the cyber cell 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 made her debut in Bollywood with Hindi movie Shamitabh in 2015, in which Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush played the lead roles.  She was recently seen in Kollywood movie Vivegam starring Thala Ajith.

Akshara Haasan is  currently working on a project starring Vikram, bankrolled by her father’s Kamala Haasan’s banner, Raaj Kamal Films.
