Noted actress Sarika is proud of the work her two daughters Shruti and Akshara have done so far.

"I am not strict with my daughters. Shruti and Akshara are responsible girls and I am proud to see them doing so well for themselves. They have started their careers with some real good people and are ahead of what I was at their age in my time," Sarika told PTI.

"There is no reason for me to be strict with them. I am always willing to guide them when they need me," she said.

Sarika's elder daugter Shruti started her career as a child artist. She sang in films and appeared in a guest role in her father Kamal Haasan's "Hey Ram" before making her adult acting debut in Bollywood in 2009 with "Luck". She has acted in several Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films.

Her other daughter Akshara has worked as an assistant director before making her acting debut in R Balki's "Shamitabh" that had megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush in the lead.

Sarika started her film career as a child actor at the age of four during the 1960s in Bollywood, playing the role of a boy 'Master Sooraj'. Her most notable appearance as a child artist was in the 1967 musical superhit "Hamraaz".

The "Parzania" actress has given some notable performances in films like "Bheja Fry", "Manorama Six Feet Under" among others.

"There aren't any worries as an actor. After all this experience, one does have an idea of what's meant to be done.

"I have played various roles and I am open to opportunities that come my way. For me, the script has to be good and the director is important as well," Sarika said. PTI KKP SDL NDS
