Asin's Career

Asin Thottumkal debuted in the Malayalam film Narendra Makan Jayakanthan Vaka in 2009, directed by Sathyan Anthikkad. Her breakthrough as an actress came with her first Telugu language film when she played the role of a Tamil girl in the successful Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi opposite Ravi Teja.

Initially many in the Tamil industry considered her to be a jinx as the initial movies she signed in Tamil were either canceled, delayed or faced financial problems. Although she signed Ullam Ketkumae as her first Tamil film, her first release was M. Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi which was a remake of her Telugu film Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. The movie went on to be one of the biggest hits in 2004 and introduced Asin to Kollywood.

Her movie Ghajini with Surya, which was released both in Tamil and Telugu, was a box office hit in both industries. She has become famous since then and went on to win the Filmfare Best Actress Award South for her role in Ghajini. Many movies followed and Asin played opposite some popular actors in South Indian Cinema, among them Surya, Vijay, Vikram and Ajith, with whom she starred in Pokiri with Vijay, Gharshana with Venkatesh, Maja with Vikram and Varalaru& Aalwar with Ajith Kumar.

Asin is also brand ambassador for various products including Spinz Simply Asin, Fairever, Colgate (Max Fresh) and Mirinda both in Tamil and Hindi (alongside Zayed Khan). She was also a part of Mani Ratnam's stage show, Netru, Indru, Naalai alongside many other co-stars.

She dropped out of Surya's Sillunu Oru Kaadhal even after being offered three songs as she thought her role in the movie had not much scope. Her part went to Bhumika Chawla. She also had previously dropped out of Madhavan's Thambi due to tight scheduling.

Her next movie for release Dasavatharam opposite Kamal Haasan and it will be dubbed in 5 languages including Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, French and Hindi. The movie Ghajini that was released in the Kollywood some time back did very good business and also got the fame and name to the actor, Surya, and actress, Asin, in the movie.[1]. After being touted as the dream couple in Tamil cinema, they are joining hands for Vel which has been slotted to be released for Deepavali 2007.

She has signed on for the remake of the Tamil hit movie Ghajini with none other than Bollywood hearthrob Aamir Khan. This move has been looked at as very promising for Asin as she is one of the few Kollywood actresses to break into Bollywood following 80s Tamil actress Sri Devi being the last successful person.

Asin's Career

She has completed her B.A. English Literature at St. Teresa's College, Kochi. She has shifted from her home town Kochi to Chennai, where she stays on Harrington Road. Before becoming an actress, she was a part-time model and a businesswoman.
