Asin walks out on Abhishek
Asin has walked out of Ashutosh Gowarikar’s next anticipated period film Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se starring Abhishek Bachchan. After the failure of What’s your Rashee?, Ashutosh dived headfirst into his next period drama based on the Chittagong Uprising of 1930. Going back to what he does best, Ashu roped in Asin to play the female lead and in an earlier interview had confirmed saying, “Yes, its true that Abhishek is a part of my film Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se and he essays the part of Surjya Sen, as far as Asin goes, I have approached her for the role but its too soon to comment on it.”Currently working on the pre-production matters of the film, Ashu was in for a rude shock when Asin backed off from the film last minute citing date issues.
The director was left surprised and a source close to the actress however revealed, “Its not date issues but Asin doesn’t want to take any more chances with her next. London Dreams while critically appreciated did receive a lukewarm response; Asin was completely sidelined in the film and barely had a role to talk about. She faced the same issue during Ghajini when Aamir hogged all the limelight and couldn’t believe she made the same mistake again.Considering the recent closeness between Ashutosh and the Bachchans, Asin is sure that he wouldn’t pay much attention to her role and would devote his time and energy in promoting Abhishek in the film. Also the failure of What’s Your Rashee? concerned her deeply and now she is being very careful with choosing her next film.
Asin wants a full fledged meaty role in her next to prove her acting prowess.”Now Ashutosh along with pre-production matters of his film will have to start searching for his female lead again and we wonder who would he settle upon considering he’s irked half of the industry’s ladies with his unruly comments on Priyanka. Maybe Ash might come to her hubby’s rescue finally!
