Thottumkal in one sentence: Asin is a beautiful Indian woman, a successful actress and a person to be respected.


I believe in forgiving malice with a good heart.

It’s my job to show up  whenever I am needed.

I stick to the call time. I have never understood the concept of being fashionably late.

There is a time and place when some things are going to happen. We should be patient.

 I’m glad I have made it without a boyfriend or a sugar daddy, without a godfather or ‘giggles’.

Acting is as easy or difficult as any other profession for career minding single girls.  

 My parents are the only people I owe an explanation to.

 It’s hard to believe but I had my first date after I turned 25.

 I wouldn’t act on the basis of pure physical attraction or temporary satisfaction.

I would like to find a man I would be crazy about.

Everybody is looking for love.

I prefer aging naturally and gracefully.
