Mumbai, Nov 15: Asin Thottumkal hails from Kerala, but the pretty lady is comfortable to speak fluenty in Hindi, English, Tamil and of course Malayalam. She was born in a conservative christian family, but was raised in Cochin. After scoring high marks in 10th, she chose to opt for Humanities and shocked her family! She started doing ad films and debuted with a Malayalam film just at the age of 15. When she enrolled herself in college, she had already 5 films in her credits, including a Filmfare Award. Asin says "Ghajini" was a dream debut for her.
Aamir was super impressed by her performance in the original "Ghajini" so much that he himself called up the actress and complimented her. Later, Mr Perfectionist approached the young lady to act in the Hindi remake of the film. She says right after doing "Ghajini" opposite Aamir, she began to choose films and took a long time to sign for films.
Later when she realized being a newcomer in Bollywood, she must be a part of masala entertainers, she gave her nod to be in films like "Housefull 2" then "Bol Bachchan". Most of her films have done fairly well at the box office, but Asin has not been appreciated for so long for her acting skills. So, the actress is now bent on doing only such roles which will give her creative satisfaction.
