Kamal Hasan’s magnum opus Dasavatharam released in Tamil and Telugu sometime ago did not do as expected at the box office, but Kamal received accolades for his portrayal of 10 different roles.
Asin, now famous all over the world for her role in Aamir Khan’s Ghajini, plays a dual role in Dasavatharam. She plays a woman from both the 12th century as well as the 21st century. Incidentally, in both the roles, she plays a Brahmin woman.
Thus technically, Asin’s second Hindi film release is Dasavatharam. London Dreams, the film she signed after Ghajini, is still in the making.
The Hindi version of Dasavatharam, which also features Mallika Sherawat as another female lead, is due for release on next Friday.
