‘Comparisons have never made sense to me’
Says Asin, adding that her career choices don’t get affected by what her contemporaries are up to
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.”
