Southern star Asin, who has now created her own space in Bollywood, was last seen in the action-comedy Khiladi 786 opposite Akshay Kumar. The film came under heavy fire from critics but made enough money at the box-office, anyway! If reports are to be believed, Asin will now be seen opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
Rumour has it that Umesh Shukla wants to cast Asin opposite Abhishek Bachchan in his next movie, which will convey a social message comically. Umesh Shukla’s last film Oh My God had been a successful one despite of sporadic protests against it. The film was about an atheist person challenging godmen. A little earlier, Asin had played Abhishek Bachchan’s sister in Rohit Shetty’s action-comedy Bol Bachchan.
However, Umesh Shukla says that things are yet to be finalised. “We did speak to her about it (film). But it is at an early stage. Nothing is finalised yet. We are reworking on our script. And then accordingly we will decide things. As of now we have not signed any heroine,” Shukla said. While it is clear that this film, like Oh My God, will have a social element in it, Umesh is reportedly unwilling to share any details as of now.
Apparently, the film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Shyam Bajaj. It is expected to go on floors later this year. Must say, it will be interesting to see Abhishek and Asin pair up because they had played siblings in the rib-tickling Bol Bachchan, which the audience hasn’t forgotten yet!
