One of the topics that Sonakshi Sinha’s next Akira touches upon is the issue of ragging. Recollecting her own personal experience of ragging and getting ragged while in college, Sonakshi narrated, “Ragging is something that is touched upon very deeply in the film. I did go through it in SNDT, which is an all-girls college but it was a way of making friends with each other. And till today honestly the people who ragged me or the juniors I ragged, we are still friends and I feel it should be an enjoyable process for everyone and not something that traumatises a student or child for life. That is something that really needs to be taken care of and changed in colleges and schools.”

When we asked if Sonakshi is endorsing ragging, the actress sternly replied, “No. Not at all.”

The actress also revealed that she was bullied as a child because of her weight. “People would try to bully me when I was child because I was on the heavier side and people think it is okay to poke fun at people who are slightly overweight.”

But the feisty actress that she is, Sonakshi reciprocated in kind giving it back to the bullies. “I never took it lying down. I would always give it back and made sure I will stand up for myself.”

Sonakshi, who has performed a lot of action sequences in Akira, admitted that fighting on screen was a tough act. “Performing an action scene is very strenuous. What you see onscreen is not even five percent of the kind of effort that goes behind the scenes. It takes days to shoot. Lot of love, sweat and tears go into action sequences. I did injure myself a couple of times.”
