Talking about Rahul, Asin told a leading daily, ''My story is eerily similar to the story of my film Ghajini. Rahul and I first met at the private airport of Mumbai.''
Asin And Rahul
''I was going to another country for work with Akshay Kumar for the promotions of Housefull 2. Now, I have just walked in and Akshay takes these early morning flights.''
Akshay Kumar's Role
''So there was Akshay, me and this person who was just a stranger not connected to the film. So I wished everybody good morning and then there is this guy standing next to Akshay who he introduced me to as his friend Rahul.''
Asin On Rahul
''We exchanged ‘hi's and went into the flight.
Eventually, as the day unfolded, during the day I have realised who he was.''
Rahul Sharma & Asin's Story
''I realised that it was actually, his flight, his tournament we were going for, he was sponsoring us and basically everything was happening because of him.''
''I liked the quality. He was very simple and down-to-earth and that quality stuck with me. "And then Akshay tells me the same day, ‘I think you two will be good for each other.'''
Asin Talks About Akshay
''I was like, ‘What? Where is this coming from?' Akshay is a very good friend, one of my favourite co-stars and can joke with me, so I thought this one was also one of his random jokes."

Talking about Asin Thottumkal and Rahul Sharma's wedding, a source told HT, "Both the ceremonies will be private. While around 50 guests are invited for the Christian wedding, the Hindu ceremony will be attended by 200 guests. In all likelihood, there will also be a private house party next day at Rahul's farmhouse at Sonali Farms, West End Greens."
The source further added, ''A special 10-tier vanilla-flavoured cake is being designed for the occasion. The menu of the events will be strictly vegetarian. Asin will be seen wearing designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee's creations at her wedding functions.''
When Akshay was asked about Asin and Rahul in a previous interview, he had said, "I've been hiding this for three-and-a-half to four years. Yes, I got them to meet and Jacqueline was also a part of it, but she didn't realise it because I played it very slyly. It was during Housefull 2 and we were in Delhi. Don't laugh, but we were playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide together in one cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting married now."
