Asin’s double dhamakaApril 3rd, 2009 - 2:07 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Southern babe Asin made quite a good impact, thanks to Aamir Khan’s “Ghajini’.
Now she has the Vipul Shah biggie “London Dreams’ coming up.
But the Southern beauty’s fans wouldn’t have to wait for that film’s release. They can catch a glimpse of her in the Hindi version of the Tamil hit “Dasavatharam’ where she plays a double role.
Unlike “Ghajini’, Asin has more screen time as plays a double role – one of a woman from the 12th century and another from the 21st and is opposite the versatile Kamal Hassan.
The movie took more than three years to complete due to hurdles and was made on a budget of Rs. 60 crores, a staggering amount for any Tamil movie till date.
The Tamil “Dasavathram’ (Ten Avatars) was released last year in the month of June and was a hit down south. Haasan plays ten different roles in the film and is a research scientist and an ex-CIA officer who are after a biological weapon lost in USA that can cause massive destruction.
The age difference notwithstanding, Kamal Hassan and Asin have really looked good together in the film, the dubbed version of which releases soon.
Actually Vidya Balan’s loss had turned out to be Asin’s gain. She was considered for the role, but finally Asin got hold of it. Mallika Sherawat plays the second lead in the film and the film also has a much-hyped song composed by Himesh Reshammiya.
Asin of course is visible more in the film and if she continues this way, she could very well overshadow many other actresses in B-Town, not just Mallika and Vidya. -Sampurn Media
