Asin sparkles where ever she is. Hollywood big shot ‘Avatar’ director James Cameron was in New Delhi last week to attend “India Today Conclave 2010” on the theme ‘New Decade: Great Expectations’ organized by The India Today Group.
At the conclave Asin was also invited to speak at the youth forum about the theme of Reality Vs Idealism in movies in front of James Cameroon. Our Asin pulled it off with grace and confidence. Asin spoke on how the youth can break free and think out of the box to bring change in movies.
Asin also said “Change, according to me, is not just brought about by the youth, but by anyone. She said it may not be a revolution, but just a small change” and went on to cite a personal example to elucidate this further. “I was born into a traditional and orthodox Kerala Catholic family and I should have been named after my grandmother. But my parents thought out of the box, and named me Asin, which means without sin,” she says. To live up to this name is what she strives for everyday,
Speakers at the conclave included the Dubai Royalty Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Union Home Minister P.Chidambaram, Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, CEO Ford Motor Co. Alan Mulally, Co-Founder of Facebook Chris Hughes, Author Salman Rushdie, Yoga Expert Swami Ramdev, Actors Ranbir Kapoor and Amir Khan.
Later James Cameron and Aamir joined Asin and Ranbir for the gala dinner that was held after the summit where the “Titanic, Avatar” director appreciated Asin for her vision. Sharing the stage with such eminent personalities is indeed a great honour for Asin.
