Sonakashi’s command made me sign ‘Akira’: Shatrughan

Mumbai, (IANS) Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha says he agreed to do daughter Sonakshi’s action film “Akira” due to director A.R. Murugadoss’s desire to work with him and his helplessness at being commanded by Sonakshi.

“I am doing this film mainly because of Murugadoss and Sonakshi. The desire of Murugadoss and the demand and command of my daughter, the apple of my eye, Sonakshi, prompted me to do the film,” Shatrughan said.

“I’ve already done more than 250 films and politically I’m very busy with extensive travelling which makes it difficult to manage time for films,” he said at the unveiling of a magazine cover.

He also joked that he was “very nervous” to star with Sonakshi.

Meanwhile, despite directing two Hindi films and being in the industry for almost 15 years, Shatrughan couldn’t recognise Murugadoss the first time.

“I thought Murugudoss was a senior person. When he entered the room, I asked him who Murugadoss was. And he said he was the one. I was surprised as he turned out to be a nice gentleman. I met him and he has a very unassuming personality,” he said.

The film — a remake of Tamil film “Mouna Guru” — also stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Anurag Kashyap and Amit Sadh.
