Actor Asin Thottumkal calls herself the contemporary modern woman and says that her name signifies that too.



“‘A’ is taken from Sanskrit, which is the first letter of the alphabets and ‘Sin’ is English for the Hindi word ‘paap’. So, ‘Asin’ means pure, something without sin. It’s a combination of the East and the West.



Asin, 25, was last seen in the film Ready with Salman Khan.
