"I have always been choosy. I have done fewer films in Tamil than my cotemporaries," says Asin. "I think it's better to be selective than sign 10 films without much thought."
She turned down Ilayathapathy Vijay's prestigious 50th film in Tamil as well as several Hindi films including Abhishek Bachchan's Delhi 6, Akshay Kumar's De Dhana Dhan and Farhan Aktar's Karthik Calling Karthik.
Ever since Asin left Chennai and made Mumbai her home, both success and controversy have wooed her. "In Mumbai, it's business first. All relationships are agenda-based and the personal touch is missing," says the actress on the lessons she has learnt. "Down South, the people connect to you more on a personal level."
