Shahrukh and Asin to star in a forthcoming film?

The Bollywood gossip mill is brewing with rumors that Shahrukh Khan and Asin will be seen opposite each other in Vishal Bhardwaj's next directorial venture. The movie is to be based on Chetan Bhagat's novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage. Bhagat also wrote the books that inspired the failed 2008 film Hello and the mega-hit 2009 film 3 Idiots.

This would be great news, in my opinion! A Shahrukh-Asin pair would be lovely, considering she's an actress that was able to prove her superior screen capabilities with just one movie (Ghajini). But, alas, nothing has been confirmed so we can't get too excited just yet. Asin would potentially play the role of a South Indian girl who falls in love with a Punjabi guy (Shahrukh). Shahrukh playing a Punjabi? AWESOME. I could definitely use me another Veer Pratap Singh type character!

As you can see, unlike that atrocious Katrina-SRK pairing rumor, I actually hope this one is true. Asin is really making her way through the Khans, isn't she? ;)



  1. I really enjoyed Asin in Ghajini..and think pairing with Shah Rukh could be great...yes I love him Punjabi too........and ixnay on the katrinakay! Nice post darling! XXOO

  2. Let's hope this film doesn't cause controversy because of disputes with the author - Chethan Bhaghat was overlooked for 3 idiots!

  3. @Bellegram Glad we agree! :)

    @BH2 Was he really overlooked for 3 Idiots? In what way?
