Asin Set For Hat-Trick Century With Ajay Devgan, Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan
Her last two comedies have scored a century each (read: collected over Rs. 100 crore) at the box-office. Now Asin is gearing up for her third comedy in quick succession and the industry is ultra-confident that yet again, she would have a century to her name.
Ready as well as Housefull 2 were both comedies and topped the Rs. 100 crore mark each just in India. She had superstars like Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar along with her and that helped a great deal in her films gaining good eyeballs. Now expect the same from Bol Bachchan as well since it has Ajay Devgan in lead with the film’s genre being comedy, something that comes naturally to Asin, says a trade expert.
The film, which releases in July, has turned out to be a different wicket though for Asin since director Rohit Shetty had his own idea about bringing laughter on screen. While Anees Bazmee had a family setting for Ready and Sajid Khan took the slapstick route for Housefull 2, Rohit has made Bol Bachchan far more situational.
“The film’s original, Amol Palekar starrer ‘Golmaal’, was largely situational and didn’t quite rely on gimmicks. Same is the case with ‘Bol Bachchan’ as well. Asin had to mould herself in accordance to Rohit’s requirement since the idea was to be serious and act naturally even though the scene’s situation was much funnier,” informs a crew member of the film.
No wonder, Asin is expecting tremendous box-office outcome with her newest outing. In their last two films, Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty had scored a century each (Singham, Golmaal 3). With another centurion joining them, one doesn’t expect anything less than triple the fun from the team.
