Today, Asin will bring in her birthday minus friends, family and time to relax. She’ll be on the sets of Khiladi 786, in which she is paired with Akshay Kumar. But if the actor’s disappointed, she isn’t showing it. “I was on the sets since 5 pm and will be shooting till morning, so I’ve had no option but to bring in my birthday on the sets. Since Akshay is away shooting for another film in Delhi, I’m shooting my solo scenes now,” she says, adding that this is the first time she’s celebrating a birthday at work.
Asin claims she isn’t a big fan of the annual celebrations, but nonetheless, she tries to spend as much time as she can with her family and friends. “What can I do about it (having to work)? I can’t shirk it. I’ve never been too high on getting gifts and having people wish me, but of course, it feels good when they do,” says the actor, unaware if her family has made any plans for the day.
On the work front, there’s only Khiladi 786 as of now. “Till I sign on the dotted line, it doesn’t make sense for me to talk about a film,” says Asin, who has starred in two Rs100 crore films this year — Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan.
Since Kaavalan (2011 Tamil hit), she hasn’t acted in any south Indian films either. But when asked if she plans to soon, the actor gives a vague response: “This year has been the busiest as far as my Hindi projects go. We will see how things go in the future.
