Akshara Haasan, daughter of Kamal Haasan-Sarika and younger sister of Shruti Haasan, reportedly turned down Golden chance to pair up with Pawan Kalyan. According to grapevine, the makers of Gabbar Singh-2 have approached Akshara for the Gabbar Singh sequel to which Akshara gently declined citing that it'd raise expectations bar for her next films and so responsibilities.
Since Shruti was the female lead in blockbuster Gabbar Singh, Pawan evinced interest to rope in Akshara for the sequel which would also add more buzz to the project. But Akshara could not agree as she wants to take some more time before making her debut down the south and wants to prove herself with her maiden film Shamitabh opposite Dhanush and Amitabh. Whatever be the reasons, Akshara has missed the golden opportunity and now the lucky chance bagged by Anisha Ambrose.
