Read on to find out why we say so...
Sonakshi Sinha has been in the industry since six years now and we have to say that she has made quite a few wise choices in her career. The actress, who debuted with Salman Khan's Dabangg, has given us hits like Rowdy Rathore, Dabangg 2, Lootera, R... Rajkumar, Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. Sona has worked with the likes of Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and even Shahid Kapoor. However, in her next film - Akira, she plays the solo lead.
The actress plays a rowdy college student who gets involved in a crime involving a few corrupt cops. How she fights back and proves her innocence makes up for the rest of the film. We will see Sonakshi packing a lot of punches and kicks in the film. But if you don't know, Akira will be Sonakshi's toughest role and her biggest risk as well !
We know Sonakshi is a talented actress, but doing action is not easy. In fact, in Akira, she has done a lot of fast-paced action scenes and some dangerous stunts which some actors would be apprehensive to do too. In times when Salman, Shah Rukh and a few other top actors use stunt doubles for their action scenes, Sonakshi wanted to do her own stunts. In our EXCLUSIVE interview, she even revealed to us why she decided to do her own stunts when she told us, "I enjoyed action more than romance. The action sequences were very exciting and I did all the stunts by myself. I trained hard and did the stunts because I wanted to do it myself coz I didn't want (the scenes) to look unconvincing."

Akira is a risk coz Sonakshi has had two back-to-back flops, Action Jackson and Tevar. But still she is upbeat about doing a solo film. People have been saying that Akira doesn't have the right buzz coz it has just Sonakshi in the film and no star attached to it. However, the actress doesn't mind about hat people have to say. In our EXCLUSIVE interview with her, Sonakshi said, "Doing Akira is one of the best decisions I have made." Plus, we have seen films like Mary Kom and Happy Bhag Jayegi perform well at the box office without the buzz. Being women centric films, they might not have got the big weekend numbers, but they did sustain at the box office and have a good run. So we expect Akira to have a good run at the box office too.
Sonakshi Sinha had started training for Akira two months before the shoot and looks like her hard work will pay off. Akira might just help her re-establish herself in Bollywood. And with Force 2 and Noor in her kitty, looks like good days are returning for Sonakshi Sinha again... What do you have to say about Sonakshi Sinha's role in Akira?
