Asin's inability to turn up at the premiere of her new film did not go unnoticed

Asin was conspicuous by her absence at the premiere of her recent release. While every cast and unit member was present at the screening held at a suburban multiplex on Thursday, the actress’s no-show raised eyebrows.

According to her spokesperson, Asin did not attend the event, as she was under the weather. Apparently she was not feeling well and suddenly developed high fever making it impossible for her to step out. As a result she was forced to skip the event.

But according to a source it could also have something to do with the promos of Anurag Kashyap’s Ranbir-Priyanka-Ileana starrer that were attached to her film. Says a source, “Anurag had offered Asin a role in his film first, immediately after he completed writing it.

But at that time she chose Rohit Shetty’s film. As the shoot schedules were clashing, she could only do one of the projects. With the promos creating a buzz and people wondering why she decided not to do the Ranbir-starrer, Asin just wanted to give the scenario a miss.”

The source adds, “She also realised that it was her male co-stars of her recent release that were hogging the limelight, so she was better off not being in the picture.”
