Salman, Asin all set for Ready

After making it big in Bollywood with the Hindi version of her Tamil film Ghajini, Asin is now on a remake spree. The young actress says such offers only help her reach out to a wider audience in different parts of the country. And now she is all geard up to work with Salman Khan in Ready.
“If it’s an entertaining film and a great story then I think it should be made for a larger audience and not particularly restricted to a group…Remakes help in doing that – to get a wider audience and to get the film across to a larger number of people,” Asin told IANS over telephone from Mumbai.
A superstar down south, Asin made her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan in the hit psychological action thriller Ghajini (2008) – a remake of its 2005 Tamil namesake. She played the same role in both outings.
The 24-year-old is now working on Ready with Salman Khan, and a Tamil movie Kaavalan, which are the remakes of a Telugu namesake and Malayalam movie Bodyguard respectively. Apparently Salman will also star in a Hindi remake of Kaavalan after Ready.
Will she star in the Hindi remake too?
“I have not discussed that yet with anyone and I don’t think the casting has been decided,” said Asin.
Aren’t there any problems of repeating yourself in a remake?
“The director is there to help you in that and you know your character well. For you it’s a new script and a fresh project. You are not in any way repeating yourself. So you approach it in that way,” she said.
Having worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films, Asin is open to working in other languages as well.
“Language is not a criterion. It depends on the project. If a project excites me… I’d readily take that up. I’m basically looking at projects that are not language-bound or from different boundaries,” she said.
