Mumbai: Southern belle Asin Thottumkal stunned her best friend Sridevi when she declined a plum project, offered by the latter`s husband, Boney Kapoor.

Apparently, Boney Kapoor and Sridevi are considered to be Asin’s God parents, who took exceptional care of the southern actress and also sent her home-cooked meals when she came to Mumbai.

However, when Boney Kapoor approached Asin for his project, he was taken aback by her rejection. Buzz has it that Asin’s denial is enough to hamper her relations with Sridevi.

Talking to a news daily, a close friend of the actress said, “Asin starts shooting for a South film whose working title is ‘Bodyguard’ and then she has the second schedule for Bhushan Kumar`s ‘Ready’ to shoot. She also has two more Bollywood offers that are hush-hush. Asin doesn`t really have any time right now till next year to sign up for another film. She likes to complete one project at a time. Unfortunately, Boney`s offer came at a time when she had already reserved her dates for other films. She had to politely say a no to him."

Well, Asin also said no to Vipul Shah due to her choc-a-bloc schedule. Meanwhile, a source said, "Fingers are crossed that her decisions don`t cost her dearly. She has been shooting in Sri Lanka and down South, so she hasn`t got the chance to gel with Sridevi and Boney. That might also be adding fuel to the fire."
