Actress Asin is said to be thinking hard about floating her own production house to make films in Malayalam, her mother-tongue, and in Tamil. She is also considering making her father Joseph Thottumkal, who doubles up as her manager, as the person in-charge of running the proposed production house.
The 27-year old Asin’s career hasn’t been going great guns in Bollywood where she made a strong entry through Ghajini, the Hindi remake of the Tamil super-hit film of the same name, in 2008. After last year’s Khiladi 786, Asin couldn’t get any other film offers in Hindi and recently lost out on the opportunity to play the heroine in Welcome Back, a sequel film, as Shruti Haasan was chosen over Asin as the heroine.
Asin was a very successful heroine in Kollywood when she went to Bollywood to try her luck a few years back. However, despite starring a few films which raked in more than Rs.100 crores at the box-office, Asin doesn’t have a single much film’s on hand in Hindi. Sources close to her say that she is sending ‘feelers’ to leading Kollywood film-makers to try and bag a film or two opposite leading heroes in Tamil.
Via her production house she plans to make films in Malayalam and Tamil, it is said. For the record, Asin has 4 bungalows in Chennai besides some plots of land which she might invest in launching her film-making company.
