After working with the likes of Ajay Devgn, Aamir and Salman Khan, Asin is now pairing up with Akshay Kumar in ‘Housefull 2’ and the actress says she is glad to have teamed up with the actor on-screen.
“I admire Akshay for the kind of disciplined life that he leads. Whether it is personal or professional life, Akshay has been a role model for many out there. He is a hardworking guy and it is wonderful to work with him finally,” Asin commented.
The actress also praised Akshay for his grounded attitude and punctuality. “Even after being on the scene for over two decades, he is right on time at the sets and ready to shoot. Moreover he and Sajid have such a tuning with each other, especially after working together in ‘Housefull’ and ‘Heyy Babyy’, that it rubs on other actors as well,” she added.
After scoring a huge success with ‘Ghajini’ opposite Aamir three years ago, Asin has gone slow with her movie projects instead of signing multiple films. “It is not about the number of movies that I am doing; it is about the experience of working in these films. What is important for me is to have a good time working in a film and interacting with the people involved. This is the reason why I have been so choosy.”
This is quite evident from her South sojourn as well. Though she has been active for quite some time there, Asin isn’t overexposed in the Tamil/Telugu industry either. “I am not very prolific there either as I don’t like taking up too much of work. Even when I moved to Bollywood, I carried forward a similar working style. I am not desperate to be constantly doing films every single day of my life. That’s not my thought process at all.”
Her social dos and appearances are also restricted. “I’m there only if the people involved are close to me. If I have to find added visibility then there are my movies for that,” she signs off.
