Akshara gets into hosting

Akshara of Stylish Tamizhachi fame will be trying her hands at hosting now. The Arrambam girl will be hosting the Gollapudi Srinivas Award this year, which will be held this month. She is right now in the practice session for the show.

Akshara says, “I am nervous because acting is easy when compared to hosting. You have to conduct a live show in front of a large audience. Suhasini ma’am gave me this opportunity. Even though I had apprehensions, I took this up just to try something different.”

Ask her if she has taken up any Tamil films, she says, “After Arrambam I got a chance to assist Shekar Kapur for a TV series in the US. I completed that project as an assistant director, and now I am back in the city. I have attended look tests for a couple of Tamil films and I am looking forward to work in Kollywood.”
