Akshara Haasan is an Indian film actress and assistant director. The daughter of actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika Thakur, and the younger sister of Shruti Haasan, she made her film debut with the comedy drama Shamitabh (2015), and she made a very small appearance in Kollywood movie Vivegam.
Kamal Haasan’s daughter, Akshara Haasan, was the recent victim of cybercrime since private pictures of the actress got leaked on social media. While it’s not clear how the pictures got leaked but they have been going viral on social media. Akshara reacted to the incident with a strong note on Instagram and also adds that with the ongoing MeToo movement it’s depressing to see such things happen.
While some were speculating that the photos are morphed, Akshara in her tweet confirmed being a victim of the cybercrime. “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,” her tweet read.
“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.”
Akshara has approached Mumbai Police and Cyber cell and has said that she will get to the bottom of it. She added, “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.”
