Every gossip monger in B-Town asks a question when you happen to meet them- 'Where is Asin?' Asin Thottumkal, who debuted in Bollywood with Aamir Khan starrer Ghajini, was missing from action for some months. She was in the peak of her career with resounding hits such as Bol Bachchan, Boss and Ready that hit the 100 crores club. But we found where she is and her new plans!
It seems like Asin was not happy doing the same kind of roles again and again. It could be the reason for her temporary departure from the work. Most of the films in which Asin played the leading lady were massive hits that made it to 100 crore clubs. It is very unusual for a star of her stature to take an off from the industry when being at the peak of her career.
She was the essential ingredient of hero-centric films and all Bollywood superstars, with a remarkable exception of Shahrukh Khan, worked with her. The southern star was playing the irrelevant heroine of all superstar action films of Bollywood. Most times, her character from one film was not different from another.
These roles were something mainstream actors like Vidya Balan, Kareena Kapoor or Katrina Kaif would never accept because there was no scope for performance in those roles. Asin, in a desperate attempt to make her mark in Bollywood, were accepting all the films that came her way. Somehow Asin found out that these films are not working in her favour even though they turned out massive hits. All the success of these films were simply attributed to the heroes of the films.
But now, Asin has taken an off from such roles and bagged an advertising offer from Avon India. In fact, she is the first Indian brand ambassador of this direct selling beauty company, Avon India. The Avon authorities will announce her as the face of Avon India at a grand function to be held on Feb 3. In Global scenario, Avon is represented by big Hollywood stars such as Megan Fox, Lucy Hale and Olivia Wilde.
