The news that Indian actress Asin Thottumkal is part of the crew filming the movie "All Is Well" is one of the major talking points with Indian entertainment insiders because of her absence from movie screens over the past year. In one of her past interviews she stated that she was going to be very selective in the roles she takes on in the future and would only be part of films in which her role was a substantial one.
Her comments raised eyebrows within the Bollywood entertainment industry in part because many wondered if she would adhere to her statement and also because her past success had provided her with the means that she could wait for a role that she felt met her standards.
In a recent interview she confirmed that she is acting in the movie "All Is Well" and that the filming is on schedule and she is acting alongside star actor Abhishek Bachchan whom she has acted with before. For entertainment insiders her presence in this movie and the comments by director Umesh Shukla that the movie will show her in "new looks and characters" has some speculating that she may have received her wish of playing a substantial role in her next film.
For Asin Thottumkal it seems as if this movie may be her 'coming out' party in terms of allowing her to demonstrate her ability to play a 'substantial speaking part' as an actress. This is her first movie role in a year and some insiders believe that she has spent the time working on her craft and preparing for her return to the big screens with assurances that her part in this movie would be one of substance.
She is working on the film set "All Is Well" and for her fans and the Indian film industry this film could be a landmark event because if she does end up playing a substantial role it could act as a blueprint to helping Indian actresses obtain roles of greater 'substance' that make more use of their acting skills.
Asin Thottumkal is an actress who might soon be recognized as a trendsetter in the Indian film world after "All Is Well".
