It is just a coincidence that my movies have been comedies: Asin

After tasting tremendous success with her comedies ‘Ready’ and ‘Housefull 2’ actress Asin is back with yet another comedy ‘Bol Bachchan’.

But the actress said that working in comedies wasn’t a conscious decision but a coincident.

“It is just a coincidence that ‘Ready’, ‘Housefull 2’ and ‘Bol Bachchan’ have come back-to-back. It is not that I have special affinity towards them that I end up choosing them. It is not that I want to do only comedy or I have affinity for comedy or that I want to prove myself in comedy,” said the actress to PTI.

“Coincidentally comedies have come my way but it is not that I have consciously chosen them. I am quite comfortable with comedy and I like doing it, especially when I have great co-stars, it's fun to do and is entertaining,” she added.

The actress feels that her full potential hasn’t been explored by anyone as of yet.

“I do feel that my entire side as an actor has not come out considering I am doing back-to-back comedies. I would be happy if something different comes my way. I wish I could do other things, work in other genres but it is not a one-man show. I will have to wait for someone to write a script which is different, which gives me scope for performance and takes me out of the world,” she said.

“I will like to try other genres and characters but within the commercial format only. I am ok with drama or romantic comedies,” she added.

Asin admitted that her favorite genre was Rom-Com.

“I have a soft corner for rom-com. But as of now nothing interesting in this format has come my way,” she admitted.

The actress, who has worked with Salman Khan and Aamir Khan in ‘Ready’ and ‘Ghajini’, was rumored to be working with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘2 States’ but both now plans of the movie have changed. But still the actress hopes to work with King Khan one fine day.

“Of course I want to work with Shah Rukh. I am just waiting for right kind of project to come my way,” she said.

Even though many feel that the actress is perfect for the role, the actress itself hasn’t been approached with the project yet.

“I don't know, you will have to ask the makers about it. Even I am hearing rumors about it. I have read Two States and I found it very entertaining. Lot of people told me it would be nice if I play that role because of south culture. But the makers haven't approached me yet,” she said.

If the actress does land up signing the project she will be acting opposite Arjun Kapoor. This will also be the first time that she will be paired with a younger star as the actress has worked with the likes of Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar.

“I want to work with younger actors. Why not? Even if you are friendly with your co-star, there is always a sense of respect and admiration with which you look at them. Probably working with actors of my generation would be more fun,” she said.

The actress is all set to work with Akshay Kumar yet again in ‘Khiladi 786’.

“I have ‘Khiladi 786’; we just completed one schedule of the film with Akshay Kumar. It is an action-comedy. Its lot of fun doing the film,” she concluded.
