Asin, the heart throb of Tamil cinema created a minor injury scare when a nail pierced through her heel. It happened while she was shooting for Prabhu Deva directed Pokiri on Wednesday (6th Dec) evening at AVM studio.
Asin and Vijay were completing the last bit of a fast folk number (a Kuthu patu), which had heavy steps. Dinesh Master, the choreographer under the supervision of Prabhu Deva was shooting the song for the last six days.
Asin and Vijay along with 50 dancers were doing this fast number, when the incident took place. Asin was dancing barefoot when a small nail on the sets pierced her heel. As she cried out in pain, all unit members rushed to her and shooting was stopped.
Asin was given first aid immediately. Vijay and Prabhu Deva were willing to give her some time, so that she can take rest. But Asin the professional that she is, refused to stop the shoot and 10 minutes later was back on the sets doing the difficult steps with ease and smile on her face.
After the pack-up, on the advice of her mother Dr Celine, Asin went to a hospital near by and took a Tetanus injection. From there she went straight to the dubbing studio and completed her dubbing work for Aalwar. Well, Asin is truly what we call the complete professional!
