Sonakshi Sinha's recently released Akira has garnered a huge appreciation nation-wide with her father Shatrughan Sinha calling her to be "a worthy daughter of a worthy father."
When the Dabangg actress was asked about the best compliment received, she said, "I got the best compliment for Akira from Papa. He said that he has also not done such hard work in any of his films like I did for Akira."
The 70-year-old actor, during a special screening of the A R Murugadoss-directed movie last week, said, "I am not saying this as a father. Rather I am stating it as an experienced and legendary actor, who has done more than 250 films that even I did not dedicate so much into action, as Sonakshi did in this film."
Sonakshi also added: "I have got good compliments for Akira. In fact, audience gave a great response. People are saying that they are enrolling their daughters in self-defense and karate classes. These are the complements, which mean a lot and I am happy about that."
When asked about box-office collections, the 29-year-old actress said, "I am happy and content with whatever Akira has achieved or will be achieving."
This movie also stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Anurag Kashyap, Amit Sadh and Atul Kulkarni.
