Did Akshara Hassan convert to Buddhism? Guess what Kamal Hassan has to say about her decision.


More often than not, celebrity kids usually become the trending topic for media organizations, and as things are, it’s hard for the celebrity parents to keep them out of it. But, when things are about celebrity kids who are all grown up and are indeed children of celebrity parents, then the smallest of things can grab media’s attention. This time the limelight has found Akshara Hassan, the younger daughter of the legendary actor, Kamal Hassan. What did she do? Read on to find out. 

Recently, there were rumors regarding Akshara Hassan having changed her religion from being a Hindu to following Buddhism. And though it is one’s personal choice as to which religion to follow, a right given to us all by the Indian Constitution, this article isn’t about her. This one is about Kamal Hassan, who has finally spoken out about her daughter’s decision. The legendary actor posted a sweet message for his little princess Akshara Hassan using his twitter handle. 

The tweet by the actor read, “Hi. Akshu. Have you changed your religion? Love you, even if you have. Love, unlike religion, is unconditional. Enjoy life. Love- Your Bapu.” Worth the aww indeed, right? Sometimes things like these make us wonder, if that such parents existed in every nook and corner of the globe, the world would definitely have been a better place to live in. 

Seeing this incredibly sweet tweet by her father, Akshara Hassan replied to the tweet that read, “Hi bapuji. No, still an atheist. Although I agree with budhism as it is a way of life and in an individual’s way of life. Love from your daughter akshu.” 

The rumors that had been spreading around also stated that the actress had converted to Buddhism due to her beliefs in the principles that Buddhism taught.

Looking at the tweet by Akshara, it now clarifies all the doubts of whether she had changed her religion or not. And when you have an understanding father like Kamal Hassan, it wouldn’t have mattered much anyway.
