Asin recently showcased her sweet gesture by sharing a story which was happened on the sets of London Dreams. Actually it was a prank played on her and may be the mind behind it none other than the great Bollywood prankster Ajay Devgan.
Asin said, “I was about to leave my van for a shot when this tall, African guy barged into my van and started shouting and being aggressive. But, I just didn’t react and allowed him to go on making noise. After a while he got tired of it and didn’t know what to do. He expected that I would either get upset and start crying or start shouting at him. But, I didn’t do any of that. I told him that if he was done he could leave my van. He laughed and said that the guys outside had asked him to carry out this act. I couldn’t figure out who tried to pull the stunt, but Ajay was the one who looked the most disappointed amongst them all.”
Well, that’s very cool Asin. Is it Yoga that keeps you cool?
