2012 continues to be a mighty eventful year for Asin. With ‘Housefull 2‘ as well as ‘Bol Bachchan‘ crossing the 100 crore mark, one would have expected that the young woman would take a break of sorts. However that’s not the case to be as she is currently shooting for ‘Khiladi 786‘ with Akshay Kumar. While one waits to see if she would manage to score a hat trick of centuries this year, it is also apparent that she is picking and choosing films that aim at mass mainstream audience.
“I have chosen those films which promise fun for the audience. I am very satisfied with my journey so far and in the last three and a half hours that I my films have been releasing, I have been fortunate and lucky to see such good successes”, she smiles.
While things are falling in place for her, Asin says that centuries coming her way are merely a by-product of her choices than any inherent desire to enter the ‘100 crore club’. That coming from an actress who was the founding member of the club (with Aamir Khan leading the show of course) in ‘Ghajini‘ is nothing short of surprising.
“Frankly, when I entered Bollywood, I hadn’t thought of creating or breaking records. I didn’t have any desires to break into a particular club either. The thought process hasn’t changed till date”, she says.
However one does wonder if her heart is indeed pining for an author backed role, just like was the case in ‘Ghajini’. After all, her other films have been huge success but one does expect a much more performance oriented film from her.
“I too do hope that something like that comes my way”, she says, “As an artist even you need some creative satisfaction. You too crave for a platform where you can get a chance to perform by digging your teeth into a fleshy character. I too am looking forward to a film which is in a commercial format and allows me to perform to an even better characterisation than ‘Ghajini‘. Now that would be terrific indeed.”
That’s right Asin, we too are waiting for that.
