After working with Aamir Khan in GHAJINI, Asin was told horror stories about Salman Khan when she signed LONDON DREAMS opposite him. Though she was confident that she would be able to handle situations by herself, she wasn't too sure what was really in store for her. However, all her misgivings were sorted out once she started shooting with him.

"Really, it was all so strange because even before reporting for the film's shoot, there was this particular notion being built in my mind around Salman. See, we all know about Aamir being so disciplined. So once I signed LONDON DREAMS with Salman, various kinds of stories started coming my way. People commented that 'Aah, you have worked with Aamir; now see what it is to be with Salman", remembers Asin.

As it turned out to be eventually, Asin didn't face any problems whatsoever all through the making of LONDON DREAMS.

"It is nothing less than a case study of its own. I can slice and dice a dozen odd instances when it was proven time and again that Salman was nothing like he was being made out to be", shrugs Asin, "I have absolutely no clue how negative stories about him keep emerging out of nowhere. As I look at them today, I believe these are all someone's cooked up imaginations."

"Let me begin with the misconception of Salman being unpunctual", Asin says, "Our first schedule took place abroad and it was wrapped up many days in advance. This means that it was a disciplined shoot and everyone including Salman was punctual. There was absolutely no tardiness on his part and he was always on time."

Releasing on 30th October, LONDON DREAMS has music by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy with Prasoon Joshi as the lyricist. The film is about a namesake band comprising of Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan, Asin, Rannvijay Singh and Adithya Roy Kapoor. Asin plays the role of a dancer in the film.
