At home, she is a docile conservative South Indian girl. But put her on stage and she transforms into a cool chic rock singer with a guitar in her hands and a song on her lips. Apparently, that's what Asin plays in London Dreams.
According to sources, there are two separate looks for her Londoner's character. The traditional South Indian look and the rock singer who takes off with her friends to jam and groove to beat.
Though producer-director Vipul Shah isn't revealing anything, it is reliably learnt that Asin who makes her transition from Tamil-Telugu to Hindi cinema, even gets to sing in her voice and play the guitar in London Dreams.
But it's bye-bye to Tamil and Telugu cinema. Now Asin has moved bag and baggage with her parents to pursue a full-time career in Hindi cinema. The family has been staying in a rented place in the suburbs for a year now. She is ready to buy her own place in Bandra. "We're looking at some places. And we'll zero in on the place we want soon."
About her role in London Dreams, Asin is totally tightlipped. "All I can say is, it's something I've never played before. In fact I think it's a role never seen in Indian cinema. Beyond that I can't talk about it. But I'm very excited about both Ghajini and London Dreams. I've a long list of criteria for selecting a role beginning with the director, banner and co-star and ending with the cinematographer...I want them all to be just right. Am I being greedy? Perhaps. I'm sorry. I can't settle for anything but the best," said Asin before bringing in her birthday quietly.
