Asin's prestigious Indo-Japanese project

    Asin's prestigious Indo-Japanese project
    Kamal Haasan has apparently pulled out of the big-budget Walt Disney production which also happens to be Asin's prestigious Indo-Japanese project, The 19th Step. The shelved project has now left Asin with tons of time that she has set aside not only to learn and practice the ancient art of Kalaripayattu but also to shoot for the film in Japan and Kerala.

    According to sources the project has fallen through for no fault of Asin's. Says the source: "The film's producers Walt Disney and leading man Kamal Haasan have had a serious disagreement. He isn't doing the film. And if Kamal Haasan isn't doing the film, neither is Asin. She agreed to do a Tamil film at this juncture when her Hindi career has taken off, only because of Kamal Haasan whom Asin respects a lot."

    At the time of writing this, The 19th Step seems as good as shelved. And Asin, inundated with offers is work-less! Unless she quickly accepts another project to fill the empty date diary.

    "Asin is upset with the way the whole Indo-Japanese project was managed. After Vipul Shah's London Dreams, she said no to everything in Mumbai including Priyadarshan's De Dana Dan and Farhan Akhtar's Kartik Calling Kartik for 19th Step when Kamal Haasan, whom she respects immensely, requested her to," said a source close to the actress.
