Asin's character in Vel, her new project with Surya, is
Miranda Meenakshi. Her role is a rip off from Pepsi Uma, the
famous chat show on Sun TV - Ungal Choice. When asked about her
role as Miranda Meenakshi, she confirmed it. She remarked, "Who
told you this? Yes, it's true. I'm playing a television anchors
role in Vel. The character is naughty, fun loving and
She added, "I like acting in such roles. When director Harikumar
told me of the role, I was thrilled. To prepare myself for the
role, I watched many TV shows." Meanwhile she is very sad about
losing a chance act with Bollywood actor Salman Khan. She said.
"Director Prabhudeva approached me for the role but due to my
commitments - Ghajini, Vel and Dasavatharam - I was unable
to accept it."
Aamir Khan are singing for the Hindi version of Suttum Vizhi Sudare
and Oru Maalai. The film is being shot in the same locations that
the orignal was being shot.
