A memorable evening: Asin
Asin has bagged the prestigious Filmfare Award for the Best Sensational Debut (Female) at the 54th Filmfare Award night that took place in Mumbai on Saturday (February 28) night.
Asin whose Ghajini has turned out to be the biggest blockbuster of all times is the babe from South, who has taken Bollywood by storm with her debut film. Asin maybe a new face to Bollywood but for the south and Sify.com, she remains the down to earth gal, the queen of Tamil cinema who left her throne to follow her Bollywood dreams. After winning the Filmfare award, she spoke exclusively to us
What did you feel when you were nominated for the Best actress with top actresses in Hindi cinema?
It was wonderful to be nominated in Best actress category with actresses like Aishwarya Rai, Kajol and Priyanka whom I have been watching since my school days. Two nominations and one award itís a warm welcome from the Bollywood industry and the audiences.
So what was your state of mind when your name was announced?
In a way it was a reversal of timelines. The last two times I was holding this black lady was when I won her for Best actress- Ghajini in Tamil and Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammai in Telugu. Andtoday getting it for best debutant was weird in a way but fun and refreshing.
What was the best compliment that you got after winning the award?
Well, (smiles) everyone came up and congratulated me either on back stage or at the party afterwards. I was so overwhelmed when Aishwarya, Abhishek, Preity, Sushmita, Zoya Khan and others welcomed me warmly into the Hindi film industry.
But the icing on the cake was when Amitabh Bachchan ji congratulated me and told me that even if he did not get the chance to watch Ghajini, he has heard so much about my performance. I was speechless and consider it as a compliment I will treasure forever.
You looked stunning at the awards? We loved your outfit and the clutch that you were carrying?
(Smiles) Itís nice to hear that. I was wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg dress and it was a Bottega Veneta Clutch. My accessories were from Anmol.
On the whole it was a memorable evening. Please comment?
I canít ask for more. It is my third Filmfare award. All the kids from Slumdog Millionaire were eager to click pictures with me after the function. They sweetly came up and congratulated and said we love to see you more on screen.
On the whole, it was the coolest award night (laughs) like Preity said because of the air conditionoing blast in the studio and we all were freezing.
