According to The Times of India, Sakshi was originally training as an actor in the US, before returning to Mumbai to enrol at an acting institution.
A source for the newspaper reports that Sakshi has inherited some of his father's physical attributes.
"He looks as dashing as Vinod does. He is tall like his dad but has a dusky complexion like his mother," said the insider.
Vinod's eldest son Rahul recently appeared in Wake Up Sid.
The actor-turned-politician's second son Akshaye, who launched in 1997's Himalaya Putra, also enjoys a successful film career.
