How Asin signed up for Vijay’s Pokkiri
June 17, 2006

They short-listed three heroines for Vijay’s Pokkiri, the Tamil remake of the Telugu hit by the same name. Asin, Trisha and Ileana—one of them will pair with Vijay.

Ileana, being the No1 heroine in Telugu, demanded 50 lakhs for her role. Asin quoted 40 while Trisha said 30 was her rate. Even though Prabhu Deva wanted Ileana in the movie, the producer vetoed the proposal.

He said she was new to Tamil and giving her 50 lakhs was a gamble. They zeroed in on Trisha but last minute consultations saw her out. She was Vijay’s pair in Aathi and the movie was a slump where as Vijay-Asin’s Sivakasi was a big hit. Asin is also a favourite of Vijay’s fans. That had brought her in. For the producer, paying 10 lakhs more didn’t matter much. Asin has a market, you see!
