Asin and controversies are inseparable. The actress, who once ruled the roost in Tamil films, migrated to Bollywood and made a grand debut as heroine in the successful film Ghajini, the Hindi remake of the Tamil super-hit film of the same name. A.R. Murugadoss had directed both the Tamil and Hindi versions and had given a great boost to the star of Asin’s innings in Hindi.
Asin then followed it up with a dud London Dreams which didn’t do well despite a strong star-cast in the form of national award-winning actor Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan. However, her third Hindi film Ready opposite Salman Khan did well and she now has as many as five films on her hands opposite leading heroes of Bollywood which are under various stages of production.
Asin, though, is not really pleased or amused with all the rumours making rounds about her professional outings. She is clearly outraged with the recent reports that have shocked her. She is surprised about reports that she has signed a film each with Shahrukh Khan (Chennai Express to be directed by Rohit Shetty) and Ranbir Kapoor (2 States to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala).
Categorically denying these rumours, she says, “I am shocked and surprised at these rumours. I don’t know how journalists write about things without checking about the genuineness of the news. I’m not the kind of person to talk about my films before I sign them up. If I have signed something, I let the production house announce it. Of course I would love to work with Shahrukh, Ranbir, Rohit and Sajid again for their respective films. But, as of now, its too early to say anything. I’d like the media to be a bit more responsible.”
Point noted, Ma’am!
