Mumbai: Still considered a newcomer in Bollywood, actress Asin is taking cautious steps towards her career in Tinsel Town. Buzz has it that Asin has declined Salman Khan’s offer to play lead in the Hindi remake of Malayalam blockbuster ‘Bodyguard’.

According to the reports, Salman Khan saw glimpses of film ‘Kavalan’, Tamil remake of ‘Bodyguard’, and was so impressed with the film that he decided to remake the movie in Hindi and that too with the original title ‘Bodyguard’. The movie is said to be produced by Salman’s sister Alvira and Salman himself is going to play the male protagonist in the movie.

Earlier, Salman had suggested to Alvira to cast Asin as the female lead. But, Asin declined saying she doesn’t want to be cast along with Salman after ‘London Dreams’ and Anees Bazmi`s next ‘Ready’.

Interestingly, it’s being said that Asin is in talks over signing a film with superstar Shah Rukh Khan and another with actor Saif Ali Khan.

When contacted, a guarded Asin said, "One makes wrong choices, turns down roles in films that eventually turn out to be hits. No regrets. I`d rather focus on getting my act right."
