MUMBAI MIRROR RUMOUR: Asin refuses Farah’s next
Posted October 9, 2009on:
Asin had a dream start with Bollywood as she bagged films with two Khans – Aamir and Salman. She was very vocal that she wanted to work with the third powerful Khan – Shah Rukh. Funnily, when she had the chance, she turned it down!
A few days ago, Farah Khan offered her a role in her next,
Happy New Year, which stars Shah Rukh Khan, which is slated to go on the floors by end of this year.
Asin took her time to mull over the offer, consulted her father and then sent word to Farah that she won’t be doing the film. “Ever since Asin appeared on Farah’s show Tere Mere Beach Mein, they have been in touch. When Farah offered her the role, initially Asin was quite excited. It is not known why she refused Farah’s film,” says a source.
The polite way to refuse, of course, is to cite date problems. “She conveyed that the dates which Farah needed would be clashing with her other assignments,” revealed the source.
The latest is that Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have set their eyes on the female lead in Happy New Year. Kareena Kapoor is also in the race. Asin’s loss is someone else’s gain. It will be interesting to see who bags the role. Considering how sought after Farah is, it is indeed shocking that a new actress in Bollywood, turned her down.
Despite repeated attempts, Farah and Asin remained unavailable for comment.
