With two films from the 100-crore club to her credit this year and another two before that, actress Asin is racing ahead on the Bollywood track. However, the actor herself admits that work is not a race for her. “I enjoy acting, that's all. I'm in no race for anything with anybody. Races? I enjoy watching them on the real tracks!” she says. And that's exactly what she will be doing soon. The actor has been invited by Ronald 'Ron' Dennis, executive chairman, McLaren Group, to attend the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Gurgaon on October 28.
The actress who was in London recently, visited the McLaren Technology Center in Surrey. “Asin had lunchwith Ronald 'Ron' Dennis and also met the team principal of the group's Formula One Team. Asin also toured the facility with Dennis. Asin loves racing and is an F1 fan, so she was naturally excited to be there,” reveals a source.
Asin shares her experience and says, “The whole atmosphere was amazing. I got to see the production facility and the historical cars first hand. And of course, it was a pleasure to meet and chat with Ron Dennis himself.”
Thrilled with the invitation to the Gurgaon race, she adds, “Ron Dennis personally invited me to attend the event as his special guest. I really look forward to it especially since I'm a huge F1 fan.”
Meanwhile, the actress is busy shooting for her upcoming film Khiladi 786 with Akshay Kumar. Having worked with him in the blockbuster comedy Housefull 2 earlier, the actor says that she's glad to be a part of the Khiladi series. But with her recent successes, one could say that she is on a khiladi streak herself!
