Akira, in Sanskrit, means graceful strength. And that is how Sonakshi Sinha is portrayed in the AR Murugadoss film. Sonakshi as Akira plays a college student from a dysfunctional family. She is a misfit in her small town. Short on temper and quick to let her fists do the talking. Akira goes about fighting violence against women as well as cliches of how actresses in Bollywood are supposed to be. Hoping the big city will calm her down, they take her to Mumbai. Turns out who Akira can’t watch violence against women and pretty soon, she is dragged into a mess. She is pitted against a corrupt, coke-snorting police officer played by Anurag Kashyap. Akira (2016) first-day box office collection in India is Rs 6.5 crore.
