Asin must be loving all the attention both on and off the screen with LONDON DREAMS round the corner. But frankly, in a film with big stars like Salman and Ajay, did she actually get ample opportunity to stand up and make her presence felt as a leading lady? Doesn't she ever feel apprehensive that eventually the film may well turn out to be that about male bonding followed by a battle royale with her being actually sidelined?
"The film is about a band called LONDON DREAMS that has Ajay and Salman as the leads with two other boys as well. I am one of the dancers and the story is about the relationship between all these five band members. Of course there are quite a few complexities that these characters go through and for obvious reasons I can't reveal them before the release of the film. All I can say is that watch the film and you would see for yourself the kind of platform I got for myself here. I am not disappointed for sure", she chuckles.
She must be disappointed though that in spite of the film being a romantic musical, there is not even a single song in a female voice. Composer trio of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy has kept women out of this musical for Vipul Shah which has a rock base to it. "I am not someone who bickers about matters like these, hence there are no complains about lack of songs", she comes up with a predictable reply, "I knew about the basic premise of the film from the very beginning and had a clear understanding of the kind of music that LONDON DREAMS demanded. The film is about a band where I play the role of a dancer, so how could I be possibly singing songs on the stage? I have done quite a few films in my career so far so I pretty much understand how things work. I don't bother around such things and completely trust my director. It's him to decide what's ok and what's not."
