Asin’s controversies
Asin was recently in news for spreading rumors that she has signed movies like Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala and Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan. While Rohit rubbished the rumors, Sanjay Gupta went on to say that Asin was delusional.

Asin in turn, said, “I am shocked and surprised at these rumours.” She has denied having to do anything with the stories. “It’s wrong. I am not the kind of person to talk about my films before I have signed them. I have never done that before in my career and that’s not my ethics. If I have signed something, I let the production house announce it. Of course, I would love to work with Shah Rukh (Khan), Ranbir (Kapoor), Rohit (Shetty) and Sajid (Khan) again for their respective films. But as of now it’s too early to say anything.”

Asin’s philantrophy 
 Working with Salman Khan has only reinforced the Kalpana-like character of Ghajini into Asin’s real life persona. She funds the education of an 8 year old girl called Radhika from Kerala. She has also been a part of camps that were helping Sri Lankan Tamil people who have been affected by wars in Sri Lanka.
“This cause is probably one of the biggest women centric issues in our country. I support the education of six children each year, five of which are girls. I have closely worked with these children and I know that if given the opportunity, women can educate themselves much better and know what is wrong or right for them. Education is a basic right and women should not be deprived of that.’

Asin trivia
