Romance can wait, Sarika tells Akshara

Akshara Haasan
Sarika and Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter Akshara’s growing friendship with Rati Agnihotri’s son Tanuj Virwani has not gone down well with the actress’s mother, according to the grapevine. Sources say Sarika doesn’t want Akshara to be “distracted”. She has advised her to focus on her Bollywood debut, R Balki’s next, in which she will share the screen with Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush.

However, Akshara continues to spend quality time with Tanuj. The buzz is that Tanuj’s Worli residence has become a meeting point for the young couple every Saturday. A few other friends join in too. The romance has also created ripples on the sets of Purani Jeans which stars Rati, Sarika and Tanuj.

Revealed a source close to the production, “Thankfully, Rati and Sarika did not have any scenes together. But Sarika made her displeasure clear when it came to shooting with Tanuj.” To add to Sarika’s woes, Akshara visited her at the film’s Manali location and stayed on for several days. During this time, the two youngsters spent a lot of time together.

When we contacted the film’s director Tanushree Basu to enquire about the cold vibes between Sarika and Tanuj, she admitted, “Sarika is very strict when it comes to work. She likes to be focussed while shooting.”

Added Tanushree, “As for Tanuj, I can only say that he was really nervous while shooting with Sarika. At the end of the day, She is a veteran, isn’t she?”

Sarika chose not to respond to our calls and text messages.
