Veteran actor Kamal Haasan feels his daughter Akshara, who is making her debut in Bollywood with R. Balki’s “Shamitabh,” is in good hands and does not need his advice. "I think she should not take any advice from old-time actors. I think she knows her way. And she will ask me when she is in doubt, but she hasn’t asked me yet which means she is confident. I think she is in good hands," Haasan said. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush. Haasan is all praise for Dhanush. "He is a good actor and he is also a filmmaker," he said.
Apart from Haasan and megastar Rajinikanth, no one from the South Indian film industry has been able to make it big in Bollywood. On this, Haasan said, "There has never been a vacuum. It is about opportunity. I don’t think like South of India actors or an actor from Bihar or any other place. I think the actor has to be good at his craft." On the work front, Haasan is excited about his two projects, one of which is “Vishwaroopam 2,” a spy thriller written and directed by Haasan. The film, which is a sequel to Vishwaroopam (2013), is in its post-production stages. Another is “Uttama Villain,” a Tamil comedy directed by Ramesh Aravind which is likely to release in Diwali.
