Asin to romance Shahrukh in '2 States'

After ‘Ready’ and ‘Housefull 2’, the Ghajini star Asin has grabbed another meaty role. The south sensation will now get an opportunity to romance superstar Shahrukh Khan in Sajid Nadiawala’s ‘2 States’ to be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. The story is based on Chetan Bhagat’s book.

A source said, "Asin is already a part of ‘Housefull 2’ and hence she often featured in the discussions about the casting for ‘2 States’. Sajid and Asin share a comfortable relationship and the actress was excited to be a part of the film, which not only features Shah Rukh but also will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. She is currently out of town but is expected to sign the papers as soon as she lands back in city.”

The source further added, “Vidya Balan too was being considered for the role after Priyanka Chopra, since the female lead in the film is South Indian. Asin fits the bill for the same reason.”

Asin is one such lucky actress who got to romance all the three Khans, Aamir Khan in ‘Ghajini’, Salman Khan in ‘London Dreams’ and ‘Ready’ and finally Shahrukh Khan in ‘2 States’.
