Asin pairs up with Vijay in her Kollywood return


After their amazing combo in the super hit Sivakasi (2005) and Pokkiri (2007), much-sought-after actors Ilayathalapathi Vijay and Kerala beauty Asin are expected to pair up once again in an untitled Tamil film soon.

After deciding to return to Kollywood, Asin wants to comeback in style and work fully loaded. She is looking for a place so that she doesn’t have to trouble her producers for paying her hotel bills. Also she wants to have her requirements ready before landing in Chennai so that she can start working from day one.

As a first thing Asin has asked her manager to look for a luxury apartment in the posh locality of RA Puram in Chennai. She plans to return lock stock and barrel.

Asin started her film career with Narendran Makan Jayakanthan Vaka in Malayalam, but it was Amma Naana Oka Tamil Amaayi, her first film in Telugu, that made her a household name. Soon, Kollywood beckoned. It remade Amma Naana… into M. Kumaran s/o Mahalakshmi; Asin reprised her role convincingly and walked into the hearts of everyone. Then came a milestone in her career – Ghajini. The season after Ghajini saw her act with all the top heroes of Kollywood; she even became a widely-discussed name in the rest of India. Soon, she packed her bags to Bollywood to act with Aamir Khan in the remake of Ghajini. Since then, we haven’t seen the pretty actress in any South Indian films. But her role in her second film London Dreams with Salman Khan (which sank without trace at the box office) was very shallow.

Kollywood has already rolled the red carpet for Asin’s return with a film opposite Vijay.
