New Delhi: Actress Sonakshi Sinha yesterday unveiled the intriguing poster of her upcoming movie ‘Akira’. In the poster, the scar near the right eye of Sonakshi grabbed a lot of attention and contributed towards the fierce look of it.
To ease the anxiety of cine buffs, the director of the movie A.R. Murugadoss decided to tell the story behind the scar. He said that a haunting past has left that mark on Akira’s face.
In a statement released today, Murugadoss said, "In life, every scar that occurs on our body has a story behind it. Similarly, Akira has a past wound that has dried up and remains a scar now. The moment we see her face we should come to know that she has had a painful past. That's why I created the scar under her eyes."

Sonakshi is said to have performed high-octane action scenes for the film, which is the remake of Tamil film "Mouna Guru".
Her character hails from the town of Jodhpur, and arrives in Mumbai to further her education and with hopes to erase the scars of an unsettling childhood. But unknown to her, Akira finds herself in the middle of a crime.
Suddenly, she stands to lose everything - her family, her friends, even her own sense of identity - as she becomes the hunted. Now she has only herself to trust, and she needs to find the strength within her to stand up for what is right and prove her own innocence and attain justice.
Produced by Fox Star Studios, the film releases on September 2.
