Mumbai: South Indian actress Asin has replaced dimpled hottie Deepika Padukone in Sajid Khan’s comedy film ‘Housefull 2’. The ‘Ghajini’ star will play Akshay Kumar’s love interest in the film.

Apparently, after a number of failed attempts, Khan successfully managed to get Asin onboard.

Buzz has it that Dips had opted out of the film to team up with Sajid Nadiadwala for ‘Heer Aur Ranjha’.

Reportedly, Deepika had certain issues about her dates and was not in a position to commit to Khan.

However, it will be for the first time ever that Asin will be sharing screen space with the Khiladi of Bollywood. The actress had earlier got a chance to romance Akki when director Priyadarshan had offered her ‘De Dana Dan’. But she chose to opt out of it.

And considering the fact that apart from ‘Ghajini’ no other Bollywood film of Asin has garnered at the Box Office, she can no longer afford to be picky.
