Asin, Salman Ready for Ready!
Salman Khan and Asin had previously made a good pair in Vipul Shah’s London Dreams. The success of the pair has probably inspired director Annes Bazmee to make a film with Salman Khan and Asin. Both of them were ready for shooting Ready.
The Ghajini girl, Asin, has packed her bags to leave for Sri Lanka next Sunday for shooting of the film, which is a remake of a Telugu film of the same name. Ready is also being remade in Tamil with Dhanush and Genelia in the lead and will be titled ‘Uttama Puthiran’.
But, all is not well with Asin. The South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC), has already boycotted the Bollywood stars attending IIFA awards in Colombo. Asin is also acting in a Tamil film Kavalkaran with Vijay, so the big question is, will they create problems for her too?
In an interview, Salman Khan, the hero of Ready said, “If people are in trouble in Sri Lanka, we should not dump them. We are here to entertain them. We won’t be able to go to Kashmir, Afghanistan or Gujarat if this attitude continues.”
Ready was originally supposed to begin its shooting in Mauritius. However, the Sri Lankan government has been able to impress Salman Khan and the filmmakers when they rolled out the red carpet smoothly for the IIFA. Moreover, the spectacular locales of Sri Lanka also had a striking role in this particular change of mind.
Many Tamil superstars were infuriated over choosing Sri Lanka as the IIFA venue. Asin said, “I respect the feelings of my fans and have not attended the awards function. However, I cannot take any decision regarding the shooting of Ready as it has been decided by the producer. I have signed a contract to shoot for them and I have to abide by that. I have already shown my concern and hope that they think about it.”
