Asin is back in Chennai to shoot her new Tamil film Kaavalkkaran directed by Siddique with Vijay as the co-star. It is the remake of Bodyguard made by the same director in Malayalam with Dileep and Nayantara in the lead. It is after a long gap that she is acting in a Tamil film. She has also signed two Hindi films many months after her second film London Dreams flopped.


Asin talks to press  about life in Mumbai and her new films. Excerpts:

How has life been in Mumbai?

Life has been good. Mumbai has been great, and the city and the industry had been welcoming.


Did stardom in the Hindi industry, awards and the success of your first film Ghajini come as a surprise to you?

I was not expecting anything. So, there was no surprise or any such feeling. I only wanted the film to do well. Of course, Kalpana (in Ghajini) is a good character. Then there’s the fact that you are acting with Aamir Khan.


Everything put together, it worked and people liked the end product. People were quite welcoming and appreciative of the way I portrayed Kalpana.


After the stupendous success of Ghajini, London Dreams did not do well. Were you disappointed?

Not really. Each film has its own fate and you can’t go through personal emotions based on the highs and lows of a film. Acting is a career and you can’t expect everything to work out the way you want. One has to be mature enough to handle that.


Many actors and actresses sign a number of films after the success of their films but you chose not to sign any film other than London Dreams. Why is it so?
