At a time when size zero is becoming a craze among Bollywood heroines, Asin’s answer to a question on slimming down is a big no. “I believe in performance, not size zero,” said the ‘Ghajini’ girl in an interview.
“I am comfortable with my looks and I want audience to think me as a girl-next-door. Size zero is an unhealthy trend. I don’t want to pain myself to reduce weight,” the south Indian siren who is making waves in Hindi cinema said.
Claiming that actresses from the south are getting a very good reception in Mumbai, Asin said the reason was their commitment, dedication and honesty. “The respect for south Indians increased especially after the winning of the Oscars by Rahman,” she said.
Extending her wishes to Trisha, who too had stepped into Hindi film industry, Asin, when asked about her advice to her colleague, said, “I am not experienced enough to advice someone. But my wishes are always there for Trisha.”
Denying reports that she had been approached for a Vijay film, she said, “No such offer came in my way. But I am always ready to share the screen space with my ‘Pokkiri’ pair. Because, Vijay is a nice person to work with.”
