She’s a calm, se­cure ac­tor in a big, com­pet­i­tive film in­dus­try. That’s Asin (left) for you. The 29-yearold says com­pe­ti­tion doesn’t bother her, and that she has never tried to com­pare her ca­reer path with any­one else’s.

“It’s two jour­neys and two dif­fer­ent peo­ple that you are talk­ing about, so how can you com­pare? Com­par­isons have never made sense to me,” says Asin, who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but with the Aamir Khan star­rerGha­jini in 2008.

The ac­tor says she only fo­cuses on her work, and never com­pro­mises with qual­ity. “I’m choosy about ev­ery­thing. I’ve been in the in­dus­try for 14 years and have done only 21 films. This shows that I’m se­lec­tive about my work and the team I work with. The script should be spe­cial. It’s a big de­cid­ing fac­tor when I sign a film,” says Asin, who will soon be seen in film­maker Umesh Shukla’s film, that also stars Ab­hishek Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Supriya Pathak.

The ac­tor adds that the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ phe­nom­ena holds no im­por­tance in her life, and so, it hasn’t af­fected her ca­reer choices. “If I had ever thought about that, I would’ve never stuck to do­ing just these many films in so many years,” says Asin, who is get­ting mar­ried to Delhi-based busi­ness hon­cho Rahul Sharma. Ask her about it, and she says: “Yes, I am get­ting mar­ried, but I won’t talk about it.”
