December 13, 2008, (Sawf News) – Ghajini star Asin Thottumkal has slammed tabloid reports that Salman Khan has been paying special attention to her.

Asin, 23, who co-stars with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan in London Dreams admits she is excited about working with Salman in the film, just as she is happy to be working with Devgan and director Vipul Shah!

“It was exciting working with another Khan, a professional like Ajay Devgan and a cool director like Vipul. I’m looking forward to the next schedule,” she told HT in an interview.

Asked to comment on reports that Salman gave her a gift on Onam and she returned the gesture on Eid, Asin said:

“How I wish that was true! But there has been no exchange of gifts. We weren’t shooting on Onam, in fact we were traveling. On Eid, we were shooting. So, I got no gifts from Salman, neither did I gift him anything in return.”

As to rumors that Salman is helping her buy an apartment in Mumbai.

“I’ve been in Mumbai for more than a year now. I moved into my house in Lokhandwala in January this year. So why should anyone help me to find another home? What would I do with so many homes?” Asin asked.

How about reports that Salman Khan’s girlfriend Katrina Kaif isn’t too pleased with the attention that he has been paying Asin?

“I find these reports funny. Those who spread such stories should become scriptwriters for a pukka Bollywood masala movie,” Asin countered.

Asin, 22, is a Malayalee who was born and brought up in Cochin. She has now settled in Chennai.

In Ghajini, Asin plays Kalpana, an ad film actress and activist who is the love with Sanjay Ramasamy (Aamir Khan), a rich tycoon.

When she successfully saves a bunch of children in danger, she is brutally murdered by a gang leader and the entrepreneur himself gets hit hard on the head when he tries to save her. The injury results in Sanjay being afflicted by short term memory loss. He is later studied about and helped by a psychology student (Jiah Khan) to take revenge on those who murdered Kalpana.

In London Dreams, Asin plays a South Indian musician in London.

Explaining his choice of Asin for the role, Vipul Shah says, “I needed a proper South Indian girl speaking accented Hindi. I also required a face not seen in Bollywood. At the same time, I needed an actress, not just a looker who could sing and dance.”
