Asin Thottumkal
Asin Thottumkal has packed her last 12 years in showbiz with plenty to be proud of. The 28-year-old has had four back-to-back blockbuster hits with big names in the industry like Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. Now she has yet another feather in her cap. Avon, the US-based beauty care company, has named her its first brand ambassador for India. We got Thottumkal to tell us about her upcoming movies and her beauty secrets:

My next film is with Umesh Shukla. This is my second film with Shukla, after Bol Bachchan. It has a very interesting concept and stars Abhishek Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. I play a girl who is madly in love with Abhishek and helps him when he is struggling to come up in life.

I am choosy about my films. After doing movies like Housefull, Ghajini and Khiladi 786, which did well at the box office and also made the Rs 100 crore list, I want to do movies that will focus on my character. I am making a conscious effort to choose films that are role-centric and not completely commercial.

When it comes to my contemporaries, I am very chilled out. There is enough work for everyone. Many of them put a lot of effort into whatever they are doing and how they look. I do share a great rapport with Deepika Padukone.

I survive on lip balm and eye liner while travelling. I don’t carry a lot of beauty products. There is a scene in Pokkiri where I claim that I haven’t applied anything but cream and Vijay reveals the truth. In real life, I don’t even use a moisturiser.
