Reasons for big expectations from Akira
The film has tremendous potential to make its mark at the box office in theatres, nationally and internationally due to a cracking storyline and a no-nonsense star cast. Shatrughan Sinha is returning to the silver screen after a long time and his fans would surely be awaiting his return eagerly especially since he is going to be seen with his daughter for the first time.
Director AR Murgadoss made a sensational entry into Hindi cinema with the Aamir Khan starrer ‘Ghajini’ which caught the public fancy due to Aamir’s action scenes and the awesome body he built for the movie. ‘Holiday- A soldier is never off duty’ was his next super hit movie starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi. With such a talented director managing affairs, Akira will surely create a sensation at the box office and bring back the bucks for the producer and acclaim for the actors.
