While stating that she regretted playing a role in Vijay-starrer ‘Thuppakki’ directed by A R Murugadoss, Akshara Gowda has said it was cinematographer Santosh Shivan who actually helped her get a role in Ajith-starrer ‘Arrambam’ helmed by Vishnuvardhan.
She said, “The only good thing about Thuppakki for me is Thalapathy, Murugadoss sir and Santosh Sivan sir, otherwise what role did I do? I regret playing that role, not with whom I shot.”
The actress added: “They told me I play Kajal Aggarwal’s friend, the explanation was different. I was new, I didn’t know how it would work. There are no hard feelings, even today if anyone of them call me I would work.”

Akshara has has appeared in Hindi, Tamil and Kannada films. She made her Bollywood debut in Priyadarshan’s ‘Rangrezz’ in 2013.
