“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. They told me that I would play Kajal Aggarwal’s friend, and the narration was different. I was new; I didn’t know how it would work. There are no hard feelings, even today if any one of them call me I would work,” The Times Of India quoted her as saying.
“It doesn’t matter. I was new and I didn’t know how it all worked. But it’s all good. Because today if anyone called me, I’d still work with them. No hard feelings, I’m very “forgive and forget”,” she added. Akshara, who went on to star with actor Ajith in Arrambam the next year, in 2013, had played a brief role in Thuppakki.
