Unruffled with joining the Rs 100 crore club of heroines, Asin says she is not bothered about it and insists that leading actresses should not take the burden
of numbers on their head.
"I am not bothered about numbers, I am happy that it happened with my films. It is not that I was expecting it to happen, it is not in my hands. I enjoyed doing my part," Asin told PTI.
"If the film is a hit it is good...if it does Rs 100 crore or whatever it is the bonus but I don't think that it has to be the main focus," Asin told PTI.
While Kareena Kapoor rules the Rs 100 crore club of heroines with films like 3 Idiots, Ra.One, Bodyguard and Golmaal 3, Asin has three in her kitty including Housefull 2, Ready and Ghajini. Also, Sonakshi Sinha joined the bandwagon with Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore.
"I think for male actors may be the numbers put burden because they are heroes. I don't think that is the case with leading ladies and it should not be the case either," Asin said.
"I don't think they (heroines) should take the burden of numbers on their heads, instead concentrate on the role and do it to the best of the ability. And leave the rest to the makers of the film," she said.
Bollywood has also witnessed the trend of actors going for profit sharing, but that is not the case with actresses.
"Ours is a male dominated industry how much we may deny it. So I hope situation changes and heroines do get share in profits...hope it changes in the near future. I hope so this happens...we deserve it," she said.
Asin recently tasted success with her latest release Housefull 2 and is looking forward to the release of Rohit Shetty's romantic–comedy Bol Bachchan, starring alongside Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan and Prachi Desai.
