Akshay is my perfect fit - Asin [Interview]

The latest buzz in Bollywood about namma Asin is that she has bagged Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786.
Sources in the know confirm that the actress has signed on the project — edging out contender Nargis Fakhri. When quizzed about this, Asin says, “You have to ask the production house about that because I think it’s best that it comes from them. I am not one of those actresses who go on saying that I have been approached for this or signed this much before the official announcement has been made.”

So how would she feel if she did bag another film with Akshay, considering Housefull 2 was a blockbuster? Asin says, “Akshay and I share a great working relationship. He’s really chilled out and we also gel well because he’s also an early rise, disciplined and professional. So it’s a perfect fit!”

With three 100 crore plus films in her kitty, the actress says she has a lot to look forward to. “I am looking at more fleshed out characters within the commercial format and characters with scope for performance,” she says.

The competition in Bollywood is very stiff as compared to the south and Asin manages to keep ahead of it. Ask her how and she smiles and says, “By not thinking about it! As long as I am getting good work and the audience appreciates me, which so far has happened for me, I really don’t think there is any competition! I didn’t join the film industry to prove that I am better than this girl or more successful than that girl. It’s all about focussing on yourself and looking at bettering your best.”
