Asin to learn Kalaripayattu!

She came, she saw, she conquered! Well, that is how one can describe Asin's dramatic entry into Bollywood. Even before that, she ruled Kollywood and was the talk of the town with producers lining up outside her house hoping to sign her up for their next project. Asin was always the flavour of the season.

She now has a string of projects on hand and a number of big budget in the pipeline. Asin has almost completed her film with Salman Khan, and is getting ready to start shooting for an international film 19th Step, which also stars Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano. The actress incidentally plays the role of a princess falling in love with a Japanese martial arts expert, who has come to learn Kalaripayattu. The film has music scored by none other than A.R. Rahman and also stars Padma Shri Kamal Haasan.

Asin has just come to her home state Kerala to learn Kalaripayattu, which is an ancient martial art form that has been in practice for several centuries. She will remain there for some time.

The actress is very clear that she would accept only films that she is convinced about and does not believe in doing repetitive roles. Asin has turned down several offers in Bollywood
