The suspense is over. After it was declared by the makers that Nargis Fakhri would have to make way for another girl in Khiladi 786, there were speculations galore around who would be the chosen one. While it would be futile to name the ones who were pitching for the role and were also in consideration, it has now been revealed that Asin is the chosen one.
"Yes, Asin has been signed for the film. In fact she would be starting the film's shoot immediately", says our well placed source attached to the film.
This would also make it second instance where Asin would be paired opposite Akshay Kumar (Housefull 2). Incidentally, Asin has been time and again repeated by her co-stars after being paired opposite them. Whether it is Salman Khan (London Dreams, Ready), Ajay Devgn (London Dreams, Bol Bachchan) and now Akshay Kumar, the girl is finding herself in every senior actor's wish-list.
"Her track record speaks for itself", the source adds, "She has already delivered three 100 crore hits (Ghajini, Ready, Housefull 2) and is course for fourth (Bol Bachchan). This places her right next to Kareena Kapoor who has an equal number of centuries to her name (Ra.One, Bodyguard, Golmaal 3, 3 Idiots). Asin has earned her place at the top and now Khiladi 786 is a reward for that."
With 'khiladi' being Bollywood's oldest franchise and the last installment being made over a decade ago (Khiladi 420), Asin would now be the new age 'khiladi' girl. The ones before her were Raveena Tandon, Mahima Chaudhary, Antara Mali, Shilpa Shetty, Juhi Chawla, Mamta Kulkarni, Ayesha Jhulka and Twinkle Khanna, who, in real life, is Mrs. Khiladi.
