When the trailer for AR Murugadoss's Akira came out, it was Sonakshi Sinha's fierce punches that caught everyone's eye. The Dabangg (2010) actress plays a brave, strong girl who fights her way out of some serious trouble.

The actress went through a rigorous martial arts programme to prepare for the role. The hard work showed in the gritty trailer in which Sinha dished out some pain for the villains. A highlight of the trailer was the fight scene at Akira's college. The latest making-of-Akira video sheds some light on Sinha's behind-the-scenes action.

The actress is shown preparing hard for the video, with lessons in boxing and kickboxing. The video also ventures into the risks involved in pulling off the action scenes. Sinha had previously mentioned that Akira offered her a chance to recreate action scenes that she loved to watch on screen. It looks like the actress is enjoying this opportunity. 

The actress tweeted the video with the tagline 'I punch like a girl, u got a problem with that?' 

Akira stars Sonakshi Sinha, Anurag Kashyap, and Konkona Sen Sharma. The film is set to release on 2 September.
