Is another Bollywood star in the making? Time will tell. However, if you thought she is just another face on Instagram, you are wrong. Sakshi has a sound educational background whereby she attended the Trinity University, London. She also has a penchant for making videos on YouTube, has performed at various gigs and recently had a music video produced online. That’s not all, Sakshi also made people sit up and take notice when she sang the cover of Nina Simone’s Feeling Good.
The youngster is also a fashionista. Two years ago, she grabbed headlines when she and Pooja Bedi’s daughter, Alia Furniturewalla, had a bitter public spat at a city pub.
To talk of her great grandfather, Ramanand Sagar’s body of work, apart from Ramayan, Sagar has written and directed Raj Kapoor's superhit Barsaat (1949). In 1968, he won the Filmfare Best Director Award for Ankhen, which featured Dharmendra and Mala Sinha in lead roles. It was amongst the top 10 Hindi films of the 1960s.

Based on his experiences of Indo-Pak partition, Sagar published a Hindi-Urdu book Aur Insaan Mar Gaya (English: And Humanity Died) in 1948. The government of India honoured Sagar with the Padma Shri in 2000.
