Was Asin really too unwell to attend the ‘Bol Bachchan’ screening?
Rumour has it that there’s more than meets the eye to the dusky babe’s absence at the big day
When Asin wasn’t spotted with the three musketeers of Bol Bachchan – Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan and Prachi Desai – at the mass entertainer’s special screening, it led to a lot of whispered talk. One of the most heard bits of gossip was that the South star skipped the screening because the trailer of Barfi was going to be showcased during the interval. Are you wondering what Asin has to do with Anurag Basu’s movie starring Ranbir Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra-Ileana D’Cruz?
Apparently the filmmaker first offered the role to the dusky babe, but she turned it down. Maybe after watching her short and snappy role in BB, Asin regretted giving preference to Rohit Shetty’s entertainer over Basu’s Barfi.
The official reason for her not attending the screening as given by the BB starlet’s spokesperson was: “She had developed high fever so couldn’t attend the event.”
That may or may not be true, but we are sure we’ll never find the whole truth about why Asin missed her film’s premiere!
