Asin, who moved to Bollywood in 2008, is likely to make a comeback to Tamil cinema this year. She has reportedly been signed for the Vijay’s movie which is the remake of Malayalam hit ‘Bodyguard’ starring Dileep and Nayantara.
Sivaraju Venkatraju, who last made ‘Priymanavale’ with Vijay in 2000 will produce this new film. Siddique who directed the original will direct the Tamil version also. Siddique and Vijay combination earlier rocked in the comedy riot ‘Friends’.
For Asin this film is a sort of comeback to Tamil. After her first Hindi film ‘Ghajini’ with Aamir Khan becoming super hit, her next film ‘London Dreams’ with Salman Khan bombed. So she is desperate to keep her top star status and image intact. But of course Asin never said she will not do a Tamil film after moving to Bollywood.
Asin and Vijay pair was very successful with films like ‘Pokkiri’ and ‘Sivakasi’ doing wonders at the box office. Meanwhile, Vijay’s 50th film ‘Sura’ is nearing completion and plans are on to release it this April.
