"Glad to be finally working with Akshay"
By Joginder TutejaAfter working with the likes of Ajay Devgn, Aamir and Salman Khan, Asin is now pairing up with Akshay Kumar in 'Housefull 2' and the actress says she is glad to have teamed up with the actor on-screen.
"I admire Akshay for the kind of disciplined life that he leads. Whether it is personal or profession life, Akshay has been a role model for many out there. He is a hardworking guy and it is wonderful to work with him finally. I am glad," Asin told PTI.
The actress also praised Akshay for his grounded attitude and punctuality. "Even after being on the scene for over two decades, he is right on time at the sets and ready to shoot. Moreover he and Sajid have such a tuning with each other, especially after working together in 'Housefull' and 'Heyy Babyy', that it rubs on other actors as well," she said.
After scoring a huge success with 'Ghajini' opposite Aamir three years ago, Asin has gone slow with her movie projects instead of signing multiple films.
"It is not about the number of movies that I am doing; it is about the experience of working in these films. What is important for me is to have a good time working in a film and interacting with the people involved. This is the reason why I have been so choosy."
This is quite evident from her South sojourn as well. Though she has been active for quite some time there, Asin isn't overexposed in the Tamil/Telugu industry either.
"I am not very prolific there either as I don't like taking up too much of work. Even when I moved to Bollywood, I carried forward a similar working style.
"I am not desperate to be constantly doing films every single day of my life. I am not like the one who thinks that grab everything today otherwise all would be lost tomorrow.
That's not my thought process at all," she said. Her social dos and appearances are also restricted and she isn't on-your-face at every event.
"I can't be seen at any particular event for networking reasons. I would be there only if the people involved are close to me. That's the way I have always been.
"Like I was there for Riteish's (Deshmukh) wedding since he is a dear friend. Then I was also there for Farah's (Khan) and Sajid's (Nadiadwala) birthday because these are the people I am close to.
"If I am seen there, it is not for gaining limelight or earn any PR points. If I have to find added visibility then there are my movies for that. I have enough commercial movies that put me into that visual space. I don't want to overdo that," said Asin. PTI
