Akshara Haasan who has previously worked with the films like Shamitabh and Vivegam, whose latest release was Kadaram Kondan, is kicked about starring in Fingertip, a Zee5 Tamil original thriller web series next.

“I am listening to a lot of scripts. Irrespective of the big or small screen, I am open to experimenting with roles. It was great doing a film in Tamil after a gap of two years and I am not saying this because it is my father’s home banner, RKFI. Truth be told, I was apprehensive initially. Kadaram Kondan was an important movie for me,” she smiles.

However, Akshara feels her debut film in Tamil, Vivegam, didn’t quite fetch her the kind of ‘opening’ she wished. Acknowledging that she could have been a part of a more successful film, Akshara adds, “It was a fantastic team, and there are no second thoughts about it.”

Akshara Haasan believes that each character has a different voice and story to tell. “With each film, I learn something about myself and I trust the process,” she notes. When the portal asked about her film's selection, she said, “Not really, but people think that I’m a softie. Unless I’m given powerful roles to prove my mettle, it’s going to be difficult. But I’m fortunate to have known behind-the-camera stuff, too. Being an actor hopefully will help me write better and strong women characters,” she observes.

Speaking about the web series Fingertip, Akshara assures, Fingertip will offer an edge-of-the-seat experience to the audience. “Technology controls us, and even a single post on social media triggers negative emotions, which can change our lives forever. I liked the premise and the way it unfolds,” she says.

Further, we ask for more names of films that influenced Akshara and she lists the obvious hits of Kamal Haasan. “He’s pretty much done everything and it’s hard to zero in on specific ones. But I’d love to direct a film with Appa and Rajini uncle,” she says, excitedly.

When asked about her love for his dad, she said, “I’m also my mother’s girl. Dad hasn’t been involved in my career until now. At home, he’s the father. Outside, he is Mr. Haasan or ‘sir’. I’m more comfortable addressing him that way. I ask mum for suggestions though. Any new offer should push you forward. Being the daughter of Sarika and Kamal Haasan isn’t enough,” she stresses.

Akshara has taken lessons from her dad and said, “Professionalism and discipline. He insists that I treat every film as my first”.

What does she think of Kamal Haasan’s political ambitions? “Dad has great ideas and I admire him as a politician,” she says. Before signing off, the portal asks if her Tamil has gotten better.

Akshara concludes, “I mostly live in Mumbai, but am working on the language. In Kadaram Kondan, I dubbed for my character, and the process was gratifying.”

“It is a five-episode anthology series which has all its stories happening within the same universe. We’ve tried to show how the lifeless, man-made social media algorithms have started to influence the lives of people,” says director Shivakumar.

He further denies that the series is inspired by the hit Black Mirror, “What we are talking about in Fingertip is completely possible in the present day scenario, unlike Black Mirror, which is about the future.”

Fingertip will premier on the Zee5 streaming platform on August 21. ­
