The Dabangg actor Sonakshi Sinha recently opened up on the reason behind taking up Akira, an AR Murugadoss directorial emotional thriller, set in Mumbai and Rajasthan.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, the actress, who will be seen playing a misunderstood girl forced to fight back said, “Well, the fact that it’s AR Murugadoss’ film, the fact that he is the director who works with top action stars of the country. And it’s a woman-centric film and he has put that kind of faith in me that he wants me to portray such a role. I am the hero of this film so that was the reason and of course the film has a fantastic story. It has great content and that’s why I wanted to be a part of this film.”

After giving audience hard-core drama in Ghajini and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, Akira is the third Hindi venture of Murugadoss.

The movie comes with a strong social message of women safety.
