After prolonged wait, the much anticipated Akira Trailer has finally been released. The movie is directed by Ghajini- famed filmmaker AR Murugadoss and is a remake of the superhit Tamil film ‘Mouna Guru’.
The film has Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role and although the ‘Daabang ’ girl has mostly played a ‘desi, demure ‘ girl role in her previous movies, in ‘Akira’, Sonakshi will be seen in an action-packed avatar for the very first time with beating the bad guys black and blue.
In the very first Akira trailer, which has been unveiled today, Sonakshi has been portrayed as a misfit of sorts, a rebel. Sonakshi belongs to the small town of Jodhpur and comes to Mumbai to pursue higher education. In her first day at college, Akira Sharma faces ragging and harassment by a group of senior students, but instead of being afraid of them, Sonakshi decides to beat the hell out of them and displays some killer fighting moves.
And that is just the beginning. A girl who comes to the city of dreams to erase the scars of her disturbing childhood gets hitched with the crime world both unknowingly as well as unwillingly. Akira soon finds her in the midst of a more dangerous and immediate threat and as she is a born rebel, decides to fight back. In this fight, nobody supports her, her friends and family turn back to Akira, and she becomes hunted. Losing everything, even her sense of identity, Sonakshi gathers all her courage & strength to stand against the crime and prove her innocence & seek justice.
In this trailer, we can also see Anurag Kashyap, playing a role of a ‘bad cop’ who is corrupted to the core. The ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ director has serious issues with Akira, and the trailer takes a dramatic turn into the ugly side of law enforcement officers. The talented actress Konkona Sen Sharma also plays a crucial role in this movie, a character of a ‘good cop’ and maybe the only person who believes in Akira.
Sonakshi has previously said in her interviews that Akira is going to be the most action-packed and challenging role of her career and the stunts we see her doing in the Akira trailer, she has surely kept her promises. We can see numerous glimpses of her gritty, fiery personality in the latest Akira trailer and with the easiness she pulls off the action sequences flawlessly, will surely give some male actors a big complex.
Akira is scheduled to hit the silver screens this September and its trailer will be tagged with Salman Khan’s Sultan when it plays in theatres on Wednesday,6th of July.
