Director Rajendra Babu restrains his daughter kannada actress Nakshatra from wearing saree for Sankranti

Young actress Nakshatra will not be wearing a saree for the Sankranti festival. This is because her father, Director D Rajendra Babu, thinks such a move would brand her and she would be given film roles that require her to wear only sarees.

Nakshatra was excited when she was offered to appear on a special programme for a television channel for the Sankranti festival on January 14. Her mother, kannada actress Sumithra, also an actress also gave her approval. Their joy was short lived as Babu spoke out of his experience as a director of 50 films. Nakshatra is a student of Mount Carmel College and had first signed Sunil Kumar Desai’s Sarigama. That film is still not complete while her other film Gokula released recently. If her father has his way, we may see Nakshatra only in glam roles for a long time.
