The numbers speak for me: Asin

Added by harini on Jun 27, 2012

Actress Asin is only behind Kareena Kapoor when it comes to actresses with most number of 100 Crore movies in their kitties. Asin has been a part of three 100 Crore movies – ‘Ghajini’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Housefull 2’, while Kareena Kapoor has been a part of 4 movies – ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Golmaal 3’ and ‘Ra.One’.

Even with three 100 Crore movies out of the four she has been a part of, Asin isn’t spared of criticism. One of the most prominent criticisms coming her way is that in none of the movies Asin had a noteworthy role. But these criticisms don’t bother Asin.

“I didn’t come into the industry to be in history books. Every movie is a gamble for any actor and it’s a relief when it turns out to be a hit. But I’m not the kind to shout about my achievements from the rooftops,” she said to Hindustan Times in an interview.

“If there are 100 people, there will be 200 opinions and not all of them will be positive. Its okay, at the end of the day, the numbers speak for me,” she added.

The actress will next be seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’, a remake of cult comedy classic ‘Gol Maal’. The movie stars Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Prachi Desai in main leads.

When asked if this will turn out to be her fourth 100 Crore movies the actress said, “I don’t want to jump the gun and sound over-confident, but from what I’ve seen, the movie looks good. Rohit is a massy, commercial genius with huge earners like ‘Singham’ (2011) and the Golmaal series in his kitty.”

The actress though concedes that the movie completely belongs to Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan.

“This is Ajay (Devgn) and Abhishek’s film. I did it because it sounded interesting and I laughed during the narration itself. And that’s pretty rare. Also, it’s a contemporary remake of a cult classic from the 1970s, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Gol Maal (1979). I’m glad to be part of this team,” she said.

When asked what was her reaction when she heard the title ‘Bol Bachchan’ she said, “Surprise”.

“But now I understand that it’s got nothing to do with Abhishek or the Bachchan family. It’s a commonly used slang for someone who tells tall tales,” she concluded.
