Anurag Kashyap: I am proud of my work in ‘Akira’


Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Akira‘ has hit the silver screens today on Friday. The film is been receiving a very mixed kind of a response from the viewers, but what comes more as a surprise packet of this action thriller drama is the prime antagonist, played by Anurag Kashyap. The director, who had made his full-fledged acting debut with ‘Shagird’ in 2011, had played a negative part in it as well, but never took many acting offers. But if reviews are to be believed, he stole the show in ‘Akira’. Many of his fans or the one who may become after watching this movie would be surprised to know that initially, Anurag was reluctant to accept this role.

The actor-filmmaker took to his Twitter account to share this, where he wrote, “I am so proud of my work in #Akira even though I was reluctant to begin with .. Thank you @ARMurugadoss and @sonakshisinha”

  • Looking at his power-packed performance, it wouldn’t be wrong in saying that now he can be also counted in the list of successful filmmakers turned actors like Farhan Akhtar and Tigmanshu Dhulia.

    ‘Akira’ is directed by AR Murugadoss and also stars Konkona Sensharma and Atul Kulkarni in pivotal parts.
