First ISHQIYA, then NO ONE KILLED JESSICA followed by THE DIRTY PICTURE and now KAHAANI. Vidya's heroine oriented, author backed roles are bound to be a cause of envy to the top most heroines of Bollywood and also those who are aspiring to make it big. Trade and media alike are hailing Vidya Balan as the fourth Khan, some are even comparing her to Aamir Khan, as far as experimenting with her roles and her resounding success is concerned.
However, there are quite a few heroines in the industry who are confident of delivering hits without the support of any frontline actor like in the case of Vidya Balan's KAHAANI. In the past there have been actresses who have delivered hits and have carried a film on their own shoulders. The recent most example (prior to KAHAANI) that one remembers is FASHION where Priyanka Chopra single handedly maneuvered the film to a hit status with an award winning performance. The director in question was Madhur Bhandarkar, and one is hoping he can do an encore with Kareena Kapoor in HEROINE as well.
It's just not Kareena who is confident of delivering a hit without the support of any major star. In line is the south sensation, Asin, who is pretty confident of carrying a film on her own shoulders. While interacting with the fourth estate during the promotion of her latest film HOUSEFULL 2, Asin declared, ''If I can get a film with a great script and good role there is no doubt that I can make a film a hit even without the support of any popular hero/star. Times have changed and the public is willing to accept more. They are more concerned with content, and even though star studded films will always remain a favourite but the audience is also willing to watch movies with a good story, where heroines have powerful author backed roles.''

Asin also added, ''I don't want to be type cast, and I don't want to do films where actresses are mere showpieces. I don't believe in skin show and I am uncomfortable doing lovemaking scenes. However I do multi-starrers like HOUSEFULL 2 because I get a chance to interact with a lot of actors and actresses and get to learn a lot from them and their style of functioning.''
With the hype around her latest film HOUSEFULL 2 gaining momentum with each passing day we can safely say that Asin is ready to complete her hattrick of centuries after GHAJINI and READY.
