Actor Asin has been in the news of late for a stark change in her sartorial sense, besides her films of course. The actor has been turning out at her stylish best over the past couple of weeks, something that has made everyone in the swish set sit up and take notice.
The actor is apparently taking a keen interest in her clothes and is making sure she puts together her entire ensemble before she steps out for an important event. Besides her dressing sense, Asin has also been written about for her friendships off screen. The actor, who is relatively new to the industry, supposedly gets along well with most of the other female actors and is very good friends with a lot of them as well. Actor Sonam Kapoor is one of her best buddies in B-Town and recently actor Jacqueline Fernandez joined the gang as well. The latest one to join Asin's close coterie of friends is actor Raveena Tandon.
While this wasn't something everyone in the industry knew about, Asin has always been a very friendly person. A source close to the actor says, “Right from her South film days, Asin has been known to be friendly. While most actors do not get along with each other, Asin goes out of her way to be friends with her co-stars. When Asin was spotted with Raveena at Karan Johar's bash, everyone was pleasantly surprised to see the two women chatting away like school girls. What people didn't know was that the two have been friends for quite sometime now. Both actors have been bonding with each other and have been spotted at different events together as well.”
Since Asin was living by herself for quite sometime, Raveena has been sending her sweets and tidbits on special occasions and festivals. Last year, Raveena sent Asin sweets during Diwali and in turn Asin sent her special goodies for Onam recently.Co-incidentally, they both also share the same date of birth –October 26.
The curious case of Asin and Prachi in BOL BACHCHAN
Though one could well imagine Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan to be dominating the initial segment of BOL BACHCHAN promotion, the latest development is around Amitabh Bachchan's 'item song' being unveiled first. This only makes one further wonder whether pretty girls Asin and Prachi are happy with the developments. "Asin as well as Prachi were sorely missed by many when they had a miniscule appearance in the theatrical promo of the film. Even though it lasted close to three minutes, it was all about Ajay and Abhishek. Worse, neither Asin nor Prachi had even a single dialogue to their credit," says an observer.
To be fair to the film though, since it is neither a quintessential romcom nor an emotional musical tale, it can't be expected to have female leads at the forefront. With the entire 'golmaal' revolving around Ajay and Abhishek, the makers have seemingly pitched the film for what it is.
An industry insider has a different point of view though. He says, "Even Kareena Kapoor had a miniscule role in 3 IDIOTS, another male dominated film. Similarly Katrina Kaif too didn't have much to do in ZINDAGI NAA MILEGI DOBARA and only had an extended guest appearance. Still, neither Rajkumar Hirani nor Zoya Akhtar kept them in the background. Now Asin is being seen after delivering three blockbusters like HOUSEFULL 2, READY and GHAJINI, each of which has scored over 100 crores each. Her presence does add weight and she should have been more prominent."
As things stand today though, it would have to wait since the Amitabh Bachchan song is expected to play on for another week at least with added emphasis on the theatrical promo to fetch as many eyeballs as possible. In all likelihood, it would be only towards mid-June when the girls would find a much better placement for themselves. Till then, it is pretty much a wait and watch situation for all involved.
