In a tweet, Akshara Haasan also expressed her disappointment over people sharing these pictures, thereby participating in the harassment.

After her private pictures were leaked on the Internet, actor Akshara Haasan took to Twitter to express her disappointment. She added that she has filed a complaint with Mumbai Police and Cyber Cell to track the people responsible for the leak. The actor, who said that she does not know who is behind the leak, termed the crime, a “deeply unfortunate” event.

“Recently, some of my private pictures were leaked on the Internet. Who did this or why, is not known to me yet. But what I do know that it is deeply unfortunate to make a young girl the victim of such an act only for a pervert mind’s enjoyment,” she posted on Twitter.

She also expressed her disappointment over people sharing these pictures, thereby participating in the harassment. “And each time someone shares it with eye-catching headlines to draw more traction, it scars me deeper and adds to everyone’s participation in my harassment and helplessness,” reads the post.


Akshara also pointed out that this is happening at a time when a number of women are opening up with their stories of sexual harassment at workplace, making it all the more “disturbing and deeply upsetting”.

“It’s particularly disturbing and deeply upsetting to see that at a time when the nation has woken up to the #Metoo movement, there are still people who would harass and attempt to share private pictures of a young girl in the public eye, only to derive some perverse pleasure that appeals only to them,” she wrote.

The actor, who made her debut in Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh in 2015, wrote that she hopes to get to the bottom of this with the help of police and cyber cell.

“I have reached out to the Mumbai police and the cyber cell to seek their help in tracking the person(s) responsible for this leak and hope to get to the bottom of this soon. Till then, I can only request that we all learn to live and let live with dignity and privacy and hope that the internet won’t continue actively participating in my harassment. #metoo,” she wrote.

Akshara Haasan, who was last seen in Ajith's Viswasam in 2017, is currently working on a project alongside Vikram, produced by her father's Kamala Haasan's banner, Raaj Kamal Films.
