Akshara Haasan in Vishal’s Thupparivalan

Akshara Haasan, the younger daughter of Kamal Haasan, is making slow but steady waves in Kollywood. Close on the heels of signing Ajith’s new flick, the Shamitabh actress has now signed on the dotted line for Vishal’s Thupparivalan, directed by Mysskin.

Confirming the development, Vishal posted on his online page: “Happy 2 announce another addition to our #Thupparivalan cast.a warm  welcome to @AksharaHaasan1 aka akshu.gna b damn exciting n rivettiing.GB”.

Late last month, Vishal commenced his new film Thupparivalan with an auspicious pooja. Thupparivalan’s director Mysskin was also present at the pooja ceremony along with actor Prasanna, who plays an important role in the film.

The movie, tipped to be a nail biting thriller in Mysskin’s style, is said to be having Rakul Preet Singh, who is going great guns in Tollywood, as the heroine, apart from Akshara.

This apart, The Nadgar Sangam general secretary  will soon start a movie to be helmed by debutant Mithran.

According to sources, the film, tipped to be an action thriller, has been titled Irumbu Thirai (inspired by a yesteryear Sivaji Ganesan movie) and it will have Samantha as female lead.
