Asin Thottumkal was one of the top actresses in Tamil film industry before deciding to head for Hindi films. She got the chance to enter Bollywood through Aamir Khan starrer Ghajini in 2008, and it gave her the break she had been dreaming of, but she has done only two films since then. This has made many think if she is not a Bollywood material or too choosy while accepting film offers.
Many might have thought Asin would go far in Bollywood after the stupendous success of her debut film, Ghajini, but she managed to grab only London Dreams, which failed at the box office. She has done only three films in over three years, which is very less for an actress of her looks and talent. Her latest film, Ready, with Salman Khan, has done exceptionally well at the box office but we haven"t heard of her signing any big film.
Sources said that she has only one film at the moment, and that is Housefull 2, a sequel to the hit film Housefull, where she has to share the screen space with Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Zarine Khan. Rumours were doing the rounds that she would do Vishal Bharadwaj's Two States with Shahrukh Khan, but it is not sure if it will take off following Shahrukh"s indifferent attitude towards the film.
It was reported that Asin refused to wear a bikini in Housefull 2, forcing the makers to look for an alternative. But the fact is – actress who have no qualms showing skin on screens have better prospect in the film industry. So, it looks like her choosy attitude while selecting films and her refusal to do glamorous roles have worked against her.
Well, she has to look for variety, including glamorous and bold films, if she wants to survive in Bollywood!
