Sonakshi Sinha starrer Akira is releasing today. Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, Akira is a remake of Tamil film Mouna Guru. Let’s have a detailed look at Akira budget, screen count, economics and Box Office analysis.
Akira is made on a constraint budget. The total production cost of the movie is 22 crores. With 8 crores spent on advertising and promotion, the total budget of the movie is 30 crores.
Akira Screen Count
As per the reports coming, the movie is releasing on around 2000 screens in India and 200 screens in overseas. Akira is mainly targeted to youngsters in the country.
Akira Certificate and Run Time Details
The movie was awarded U/A certificate by CBFC after chopping down two violence and fight sequences. The run time of the movie is 2 hrs and 16 minutes.
Akira Economics and Box Office Analysis
Made on a budget of 30 crores, the movie has already recovered 15.5 crores via music and satellite rights. Akira just needs another 14.5 crores theatrical business (India and overseas). It is good to see that a women-centric movie has gained a profitable satellite deal. This comes as a big deal for Sonakshi Sinha at the time when the male stars are struggling to get a good Television deal.

We can expect Akira to be a good action entertainer as it is coming from the house of A.R. Murugadoss. He has delivered good movies like Holiday and Ghajini. Akira is expected to have a decent opening of around 5 crores, a good number considering it is a female-centric movie. After a decent opening, the movie will rely on WOM and reviews. Akira would be aiming to compete with other female-centric films like Mardaani, NH10 and Jai Gangaajal.
