After Nargis Fakhri was given the marching orders from Akshay Kumar’s next film, word is that Asin has been roped in for the same role. The reason why Nargis was ousted was because she didn’t look ‘the part’ of Mithun’s sister.
The grapevine is abuzz with news that the makers now have found a perfect replacement for Nargis. Asin apparently has been signed for the same role, thanks to her ‘earthy’ looks. And since debuting in Ghajini, this will be the actress’ sixth film in Bollywood.
Asin’s father who handles her work tells us, “It would be better if you ask the production house to confirm”. Both Asin and the producers remained unavailable to comment.
