The poster of Akira has definitely created a lot of curiosity among moviegoers about the film. Whats interesting is that the scar that is visible on Sonakshi's forehead has an interesting back story to it.
Director A R Murugadoss wanted to establish that she has gone through enough but isn't weak to stand up and fight it out. Talking about the same, he says, "In life every scar that occurs on our body has a story behind it.Similarly Akira has a past wound that has dried up & remains a scar now .The moment we see her face we should come to know that she has had a painful past. that's why I created the scar under her eyes."
