Orthodox custodians of Tamil Culture in Tamil Nadu are no more considering Asin as their girl. Perhaps, Mallu Babe has grown to top position with the blessings of Tamil audience, Tamil heroes and Tamil directors. As soon as news about director Shankar planning to rope in Asin as heroine besides Vikram in his next project has come out in headlines, the organization of Hindu Makkal Katchi has issued a threatening call to Shankar to drop his idea.
Asin is regarded as betrayer of the interests of Tamil because she went to Sri Lanka for a film shooting against the call of Tamil Nadigar Sangham and then she took part in a grand evening party arranged by Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is considered a war criminal for massacring innocent Tamilians in Lanka. At this juncture, Shankar’s plan to sign up Asin shocked the Tamil public.
