Asin Is Politically Correct
The always politically correct Asin is coiled in the controversy of shooting in Sri Lanka, in spite of not attending the IIFA awards in Colombo. She is upset over the unnecessary political hype created by SIFCC.
She adds, “I would leave politics to politicians. I am just an artiste and not a politician. I would not like to be dragged into any controversy. Please understand that I am here to do my job.”
Asin is presently in Sri Lanka shooting for her film, ‘Ready’, but the always spotlessly clean imaged Asin is unfairly caught into some controversies for shooting in Sri Lanka. The reason for all the controversies is the merciless killing of hundreds of Tamilians in Sri Lanka some months back.
Asin has a South Indian career origin and thus she is expected to abide by the rules of South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce. In fact, the stars who attended the IIFA awards have already been banned by the SIFCC. The stars are Hrithik, Salman, Vivek and Saif Ali Khan.
Asin is worried on all these issues and says that she has a commitment with director Anees Bazmi and actor Salman Khan for the film, so she can’t back out.
She adds, “First, let me tell you I had committed to ‘Ready’ with Salman Khan some time ago. At that time, I did not know where the shooting was to take place. I am just an artiste in the film and I do not have a say on where the film will be shot.”
“That is the call of the producer and director. Though I did express my concern to them when they decided to shoot in Sri Lanka, the final decision rests with them. At the end of the day, I am just doing my work, as a professional.”
