“Ragging is touched upon greatly in the film (‘Akira’). I feel that I did go through it in SNDT (Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women’s University), which is an all-girls’ college but it was a way of making friends with each other. Till today, people who ragged me or I ragged my juniors, we are still friends. I think it should be an enjoyable process to everyone and not something that traumatises a student or a child for life. That’s something which needs to be taken care of.” Sonakshi said.

“Akira” sees Sonakshi’s character coming to Mumbai from Jodhpur, where she gets into a tiff with the goons of the college she enrols in. The story is about her fight to come out of a case, where the college goons, a corrupt cop played by Anurag Kashyap and another played by Konkona Sen Sharma play crucial roles. Kashyap will be seen playing the antagonist in the film and she says he has done a great job.

Presented by Fox Star Studios, “Akira” is directed by Murugadoss, who had previously directed Sonakshi in the film “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty”, which was a success at the box office.

The film will release on September 2.
