I was ragged in college: Sonakshi Sinha shares her story1,328 views
Mumbai: In her upcoming film ‘Akira’, a ragging incident in college triggers the fiery side of Sonakshi Sinha’s character, who then lands punches, kicks and sticks on the college goons and others who follow.
Being the daughter of an actor-politician and several kilos heavier than now, did anyone dare rag Sonakshi in college? “Ragging is touched upon greatly in the film (‘Akira’). I feel that I did go through it in SNDT (Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women’s University), which is an all-girls’ college but it was a way of making friends with each other,” she said at an event.
She further added, “Till today, people who ragged me or I ragged my juniors, we are still friends. I think it should be an enjoyable process to everyone and not something that traumatises a student or a child for life. That’s something which needs to be taken care of.”
‘Akira’, directed by A. R. Murugadoss, also stars Anurag Kashyap and Konkona Sen Sharma, releases on September 2.
She started her career as a model and walked the ramp in the Lakme Fashion week in 2008.
