Is Asin-Neil Nitin Mukesh the new item of Bollywood?
Mumbai: Here’s some really spicy news for all. South Indian beauty Asin Thottumkal and Neil Nitin Mukesh could well be the next B-Town couple.
Buzz has it that the lady who has been cast opposite Neil in Ravi Chopra’s upcoming flick ‘Pocketmaar’ has been having a gala time in the company of legendry singer Mukesh’s grandson.
Apparently, the two actors have been seeking advice from each other on what kind of roles they should opt for. Neil has even been suggesting what brand of car Asin should go for.
Like all lovebirds, Asin and Neil have tried hard to keep their relationship under wraps.
Neil had recommended Asin’s name to director Hriday Shetty to cast her opposite him in the filmmaker’s flick. And Neil’s demand to have her on board raised a lot of eyebrows. On being approached, Asin took Shetty by surprise.
Talking to the tabloid, a source said, "Hriday was shocked when Asin not only refused the offer but also told him the role wouldn`t suit Neil either."
Allegedly, Neil lost his cool once when he was quizzed by a reporter about his equation with Asin.
"Asin is a very close friend, and I see no reason why I should shy away from that. I am fond of her and we are good friends, but I don`t need to recommend her to anyone,” a tabloid quoted Neil as saying.
"Asin and Neil have become very close to each other. Their combined decision about the Hriday Shetty film was kind of weird and hard to explain," added the source.
Nonetheless, as all stars do, Neil chose to keep silent but conveyed through his manager that was not seeing the ‘Ghajini’ star. "Neil is not dating Asin. But I am not aware of the Hriday Shetty incident," Neil’s manager said.
