How Asin came in for Vijay’s Pokiri!!
May 22, 2006
We at behindwoods have been covering the ongoing drama about Vijay’s next film at every twist and turn. We told you about the several films which were being considered. Now we know for sure that it would be Pokiri which is the remake of a Telugu film with Prabudeva as the director.
As for the heroine, Bhavana was said to be the first choice and then it was Ileana. While both girls were eager to act with Vijay they could not accommodate their dates. So, the choice fell on Vijay’s lucky mascot, Asin. The Vijay-Asin pair had earlier given the hit Sivakasi last year.
Asin is quite selective about her roles nowadays as she is eyeing Bollywood and does not want to be seen as signing every film that comes her way. Knowing Prabudeva’s standing as a good director in Telugu, she agreed for the role.
This would also be Prabudeva’s first film as a director in Tamil. Mani Sharma who did the original score would be the music director in Tamil as well.
