Akira new poster: Sonakshi Sinha is ready to kick some serious ass in this new look!

The trailer of the film had been appreciated a lot for Sonakshi’s action chops. The film is scheduled to release on 2 September.

Once Akira is released, if anyone starts calling Sonakshi Sinha ‘female Akshay Kumar’, can we blame them from doing so?

The makers of the action drama have release a poster of the film, where Sonakshi Sinha is seen delivering a perfect side kick pose that would make Jackie Chan proud.

It has been long since we saw a mainstream doing the main lead in a serious actioner, where she gets to have all the fun kicking some ass, something Bollywood always associated the boys to do. And we are also glad that it is Sonakshi Sinha who is doing the same, since she has always been relegated to playing the hero’s arm candy in many of her flicks like Dabanng and its sequel, R…Rajkumar, Rowdy Rathore and Holiday. Akira proves to be a huge opportunity for her to show she is just more than playing a damsel in distress – she can even put the villains to distress.

Akira is a remake of the Tamil film Mounaguru, which incidentally had a male protagonist (whose gender in swapped in the Bollywood remake). The film is directed by AR Murugadoss, who previously directed Sonakshi in Holiday, along with Akshay Kumar. Akira also has Konkona Sen Sharma who plays a honest cop, while Gangs of Wasseypur director Anurag Kashyap will be playing an evil cop. Apart from these actors, the film will also star Amit Sadh (who won a lot of appreciation for his role in Sultan), Raai Laxmi and Atul Kulkarni.
