Mumbai: At the trailer launch of Sonakshi Sinha’s much-awaited film Akira. The 29-year-old actress says that she has learnt to do action from actors like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn.
Akira produced and directed by AR Murugadoss. It is the remake of Tamil film Mouna Guru in which she plays an aggressive college student who comes to Mumbai from Jodhpur and gets into trouble with some goons at the college she enrolls herself into. The story is her struggle and fight against the corrupt system.
When asked who is her favourite action co-star she replied. “Dabangg is Salman, Rowdy is Akshay and Sardar is Ajay. The past five years I’ve been working with these guys and I have learned only ‘maar peet’ from them.”
“It’s truly been a pleasure watching them do the action on screen. I love action films, I love to be a part of them and I’m really happy, thankful, grateful that I could be doing the action in this film myself.”
When asked if she took any tips from Akshay, she said, “The biggest tip that he gave me was to be away from injuries, which even I was not able to follow. But he is a very sensible person when it comes to understanding proper form and martial arts.”
”Watching him while I was shooting with him in all the movies that I have done with him, watching him do the action, you get to learn a lot, and he’s always very involved with it, so he automatically teaches you without it being intentional,” she added.
