Reacting to recent reports related to her drastic weight loss, actor Asin Thottumkal claimed that, “media reports often get blown out of proportion,” while she was in town to promote her movie, Housefull 2.

“Even I was surprised when I read that I had lost 10 kgs, and laughed over it with my friends. I had put on a little bit weight during the shooting of Ready which I thought I should lose. I have lost only 3-4 kilos. Not more than that,” said the 26-year-old actor.

When asked if she prefer doing a solo act similar to that in Ghajini, or perform in a multi-starrer like Housefull 2, the actor said, “I think the lines between the two are now blurring. I prefer a performance-oriented strong role in a commercial format. A good role in commercial cinema which is viewed by maximum people is what I like,” Currently shooting for the film Bol Bachchan with actor Ajay Devgn, Asin says that contrary to his serious brooding image onscreen, Devgn is a fun-loving prankster in real life. “With Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan on sets, there was some ‘bro-hood’ happening between them. But they have been unsuccessful in pulling any of their pranks on me till now,” she said with a smile.

When asked about her filmy plans down South, she added, “I think I have done whatever I had to in the South Indian film industry. Unless I get a different kind of role, there is no point repeating myself. I would prefer to explore new avenues in Bollywood.”
