What Sonakshi said:
“You can see a distinct shift in the types of characters I’ve been performing since Akira, so I didn’t just say it for the sake of saying it. I’m remaining true to my word. I doubt I’ll ever be able to call myself maal again. “It is a step that everyone must take,” she explained. Sonakshi regards AR Murugadoss’s 2016 action film Akira as a watershed moment in her career. In the film, she portrays a vigilante against acid attacks and female maltreatment.

“As an artist, you bear a responsibility. A lot of people look up to you. I stand by the fact that I was young and had the opportunity to be a part of some really significant films. No one in their right mind would have said no at that time. So I did them, but some things still felt odd. Then you grow, and others notice, discuss, and bring it to your attention. It’s criticism, but it’s helpful,” Sonakshi explained.
