On her way to Mangalore for a function, Asin was recently at the Mumbai airport and was about to board her flight, when a cute, curly-haired little year old girl came running up to her shouting, “Didi! Didi!” The actress immediately picked her up and the next thing she knew, the little muppet had wrapped her tiny arms around her neck and given her smacking kiss on the cheeks! We hear the child just refused to let Asin go. So the actress gave her a few chocolates which were in her handbag, while the child's mother tried unsuccessfully to seperate her from Asin. Asin's flight (at the adjacent gate) was boarding, so to make things easier, Asin carried the little girl with her till the gate and finally managed to cajole the kid to let her go. Sweet!
...says actor Asin, who'll be celebrating the harvest festival like every other Keralite today
For the Kerala born actor Asin, Onam is one of the big festivals that she celebrates with gusto. The actor, whose childhood and schooling was in Kerala, gets very excited with the very thought of the harvest festival. Though a busy schedule has kept her away from her home in recent years, she tries to spend the day with family in Mumbai, if not Kerala. "It gets difficult to celebrate festivals when you have a packed shooting schedule. Even this time, the chances of spending the day with my family seemed bleak as I'm stationed in Rajasthan till October, but fortunately I managed to get two days off around Onam. So I flew down to Mumbai on Tiruonam (main festival) today to spend the day with my parents. My mom will be cooking up a feast and I'm looking forward to polishing it all off" she smiles. Asin has a lot of pleasant memories associated with Onam, the biggest festival in Kerala. She says, "Very few festivals are celebrated in Kerala, but Onam celebrations are really grand. All my school friends would come over during Onam for Onasadhya (feast). The highlight of the festival is obviously the vegetarian food spread, but the dessert, payasam, is the best part of it. Known as the King of sweets, payasam (kheer) is my most favourite dessert." "It's also a day when family members from far and near come visiting. The ladies in the household would prepare the feast and serve it on banana leaf. Girls dressed up in their pat-pavadas (silk skirts), women in their onakodi (a traditional ivory and gold border sarees) and men in their mundus ( lungi)," Asin continues. "However, the best part of the day was when Maveli (King Mahabali) came visiting (a la Santa Claus) his subjects' homes." She has fond memories of preparing to welcome Maveli home. "He would be welcomed with a flower carpet known as the Athapookalam. As kids we would head out early in the morning with our baskets to collect flowers to make the carpet. It used to be so much fun," she recalls. The one thing Asin never forgets to do on Onam is call up her childhood friends. "All my school friends are spread across the globe. So, on this day, we connect on conference call and do some catching up," she reveals. The actor plans to do some Malayalam channel surfing with her parents as well. "The channels will have some special Onam programmes. I don't want to miss on tiruvadarakali (traditional dance) — with women dancing around a vessel filled with rice. It symbolises prosperity," she expains.
Asin Thottumkal is an actress who does not generally take off on extended holidays.
But the Ghajini girl, who enjoys new sights and likes to explore different cultures, sure knows how to de-stress and chill out whenever she gets a break from her hectic work schedules.
Recently, the pretty actress was shooting in Jaipur for her latest Bollywood flick, Bol Bachchan, with her costars Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgan.
Sources say that the shooting of a particular combo scene requiring Ajay and Abhishek was not wrapped and got extended to the next day. Since Asin was not a part of the scene, she got a day off and reportedly prowled around the Pink City to take in the sights.
Speaking to DC from Jaipur, an excited Asin bubbled enthusiastically, “I got an unexpected day off last week! I love exploring different places, meeting people and absorbing diverse cultures. When my director Rohit Shetty called and told me that I was not required for the day, it was a welcome relief."
"I just jumped at the chance and decided to go on a sight-seeing trip around the city instead of confining myself to the four walls of the star hotel where we were staying. I visited Amir (Amber) Fort and from there headed to Sheesh Mahal, Albert Mahal and Hawa Mahal. What a colorful and vibrant city!” she marvelled.
The gutsy girl from God's own country, who admits that she is an adventurous person by nature, embarked on a camel ride as well as an elephant ride, for a few hours. “I have seen a lot of people who are scared to ride on a camel or elephant. But I did not want to miss the experience and I rode on an elephant to the Amir Fort.”
Later she drove to a shopping complex and went on a shopping spree.
She bought plentiful handicrafts, fabrics, Mughal paintings, pashminas, and limited editions of books on jewellery design and dance, which are available only in Jaipur. “I also watched a Rajasthani puppet show in the evening and spoke to a few snake charmers on the road, though I felt sad for the reptiles”, she remarked.
A source reveals that there were huge crowds of Abhishek fans who had gathered at the shooting venue when they got the news that the Bol Bachchan unit would be camping in Jaipur for the next month.
Reportedly they also got into an argument with Bachchan's bodyguards when they got too close and the guards showed them their muscle power
