Asin’s father Joseph Thottumkal was recently rushed to hospital with acute appendicitis. Asin immediately canceled all her film and promotional activity and has rushed to be by his side. Joseph is currently waiting for surgery at Andheri. “I’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible with my father,” reports Asin, “I had to cancel most of my work commitments. He has appendicitis and he’ll soon have to undergo surgery. He has been trying to postpone the surgery as there are too many professional commitments to take care of but I want him to get treated as soon as possible.”
The confusion over Asin’s age was apparently cleared up recently with a statement from her father that she is in fact only 23 and not 27 as was commonly believed. She was born on October 26th, 1985 in Kochi, Kerala.
Asin currently has two films lined up — London Dreams with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan and the very interesting The 19th Step with Kamal Hassan and Genghis Khan — that’s Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano, who played the Mongol leader in the film of the same name.
