After the super success of Ghajini, critics went gaga over â€˜Ghajiniâ€™ girl Asin and said she will go places. And thatâ€™s exactly what the South Indian beauty is doing. The actress is aiming very big with the multi-lingual Walt Disney production, â€˜19 Stepsâ€™ to be directed by Bharath Bala.
â€œThe film is being produced by Walt Disney and a good portion will be shot in Kerala. Kamal Haasan plays an important role in the film which also has popular Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano. This is going to be made in Tamil, Japanese and English and would commence in the second half of this year,â€ Asin said. â€œFor 19 Steps, I am now soon going to learn martial arts because the storyline demands that,â€ added Asin. Written by veteran scriptwriter MT Vasudevan Nair, the film narrates the tale of a Samurai warrior trying to conquer the ancient Indian martial art of Kalaripayattu. Kamal Haasan plays the role of an Indian martial arts guru.
The South Indian actress made her debut in the Sathyan Anthikkad-directed Narendran Makan Jayakanthan Vaka in 2001 at the age of 15. Since then, she has acted in both Tamil and Telegu films besides Ghajini. Asin is now busy completing her second Bollywood film â€˜London Dreamsâ€™ with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan. Good going, gal!
