A Professor of N M College said, “We were really happy to meet Sonakshi Sinha and interact with her on her new film Akira. The fact that she is portrayed as a strong woman who stands up for herself in her film has served as an inspiration for many of our students. We are very happy to announce that we have decided to start self-defense workshops in our campus very soon, and we are excited that we were able to get Sonakshi to kick start this campaign.”
