A veteran southern siren, Asin was no newbie when she burst onto the silver screen nationwide in her unforgettable 2008 debut in 'Ghajini,' with Aamir Khan standing firmly by her side. By then, she'd already been delivering hits down South, where she was renowned not only for her stunning looks but also her formidable and versatile acting prowess--something a majority of our more mainstream Bollywood actresses lack.
While the Khans and Bachchans tend to rule as the most bankable actors around, only a few South Indian actresses have managed to forge their way to the top. But with a series of big name films--'Housefull 2' being the most recent--it seems Asin has made a permanent mark on B-town.
The media loves to portray her as a daddy's girl, but all we know is that whoever is making her career decisions for her is doing a stellar job. Considering everything from her sartorial choices and her role-picking to her relationship with the media, this is an actress who is determined to enjoy a long stay in this fickle industry.
Sure, we're not exactly filled with excitement at the prospect of her acting in a typically unintelligent Nadiawala film, but this was a calculated decision on her part. After all, anyone with half an eye trained on Bollywood releases knows that this one is destined to be a hit, despite all of its shortcomings.
So for making some seriously well-planned career moves, her acting versatility and yet another (potentially) hit film, Asin Thottumkal is our 'Babe of the Week.'
