Sonakshi Sinha’s next film Akira is based on the issue of college ragging.
Recollecting her own personal experience Sonakshi said, “Ragging is something that is touched upon very deeply in the film. I did go through it in an all-girls college and it can be seen a way of making friends. And the people who ragged me or the juniors I ragged are still friends.”
When we asked if Sonakshi is endorsing ragging, the actress sternly replied, “No. Not at all.”
The actress revealed that she was bullied as a child because of her weight. “People would try to bully me when I was child because I was on the heavier side and people think it is okay to poke fun at people who are slightly overweight. But I never took it lying down. I would always give it back and made sure I will stand up for myself.”
Sonakshi, who has performed a lot of action sequences in Akira, admitted that fighting on screen was a tough act. “Performing an action scene is very strenuous. What you see onscreen is not even five percent of the kind of effort that goes behind the scenes. It takes days to shoot. Lot of love, sweat and tears go into action sequences. I did injure myself a couple of times.”
The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on 2 September. Sonakshi while shooting got injured in an action scene for the movie in July. It is the remake of Tamil film Mouna Guru. – CINEWS
