‘Luckily’, no stunts for Konkona Sen Sharma in ‘Akira’

New Delhi, Oct 4 (IANS) After exploring the realms of reality drama with “Talvar”, Konkona Sen Sharma will be next seen as a police officer in Sonakshi Sinha’s “Akira”. The actress says “luckily” she didn’t have to perform daredevil stunts as she essays a pregnant woman.

Konkona, known as a powerhouse performer of the Indian film industry, said she’s in love with her strong character in the upcoming film, helmed by A.R. Murugadoss.

“I like my role in ‘Akira’, which is a remake of a south Indian film. I play the role of a pregnant cop as is in the original. So, since it’s the role of a pregnant cop, luckily I didn’t have to do any stunts. It’s a nice and powerful role of a strong woman,” Konkona told IANS over phone.

Needless to say, she didn’t even have to undergo any training for the role.

The action thriller — a remake of 2011 Tamil film “Mouna Guru” — also stars Shatrughan Sinha, Anurag Kashyap and Amit Sadh.

The original film narrates a story of a misunderstood college youth, who gets involved in a crime plot and how his life goes for a toss. The film highlights a strong social message and focuses on the safety of women.

But Murugadoss has made some changes to the storyline for it’s a Hindi remake.

Konkona, who announced her split with husband Ranvir Shorey last month, added that she “has finished shooting for it”.

Meanwhile, Konkona is basking in all the appreciation that is coming her way for her portrayal as the mother of the murdered character in “Talvar”. Meghna Gulzar’s directorial unfolds three scenarios of the 2008 murder of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar and her family’s domestic servant Hemraj on the silver screen.
