Mumbai: Actor Shatrughan Sinha is proud of his daughter and actress Sonakshi Sinha for the devotion she shows towards her work.
Shatrughan also heaped praise on the hard work she has put in for her action avtaar in the forthcoming film "Akira". He said even he "wasn't like her" when he used to do action films.
"Sonakshi has done the film ('Akira') with so much of devotion and concentration even I wasn't like her when I used to do action films. She is a hard worker," Shatrughan said here.
"Akira" sees Sonakshi's character coming to Mumbai from Jodhpur, where she gets into a tiff with the goons of the college she enrolls in. The story is about her fight to come out of a case in which the goons and corrupt police officials play crucial roles.
Shatrughan added: "Let us wait for the release and the audience's feedback. I am happy that Sonakshi's performance in 'Akira' has been appreciated well. Even my friends, colleagues from Bollywood, Sonakshi's seniors are praising her."
Presented by Fox Star Studios, “Akira” is directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who had previously directed Sonakshi in the film "Holiday".
The film, also starring Anurag Kashyap and Konkona Sen Sharma, will release on September 2.
