Actress Asin Thottumkal, who made her Bollywood debut with breakthrough film 'Ghajini' (2008) opposite actor Aamir Khan, has expressed her interest in doing more commercial films.
Stating that commercial cinema reaches out to a larger number of people, the actress told Reuters that she would to like to focus more on such films.
"I would focus on commercial cinema, and within that I would look at more fleshed out characters," Reuters quoted Asin as saying.
"The closest example I could give is that of my character in 'Ghajini'. Kalpana had her own character graph - she had different shades to her and it drove the story forward. That's the kind of work I am looking for," she added.
Asin's first role in Bollywood was a cakewalk for her, having done the same role in the original version. After 'Ghajini' which was the highest grossing Bollywood film of 2008, Asin was seen with two big stars Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn in ' London Dreams' Unfortunately, the film was a box-office debacle.
But Asin was quick to climb the success ladder once again with blockbuster comedy flick 'Ready' (2011) co starring Salman.
Her recently released "Housefull 2- The Dirty Dozen" directed by Sajid khan too has set the cash registers ringing. The film has fetched more than one billion so far.
Asin, an established star in the South, shared her happiness on her successful transition from South cinema to Bollywood.
"It's been three years actually. I am quite happy. Not many people are able to make the successful transition from the southern film industry to Bollywood, and the fact that I did it with a short time-period of three years, is great," Asin told Reuters.
"Two out of my three films have been blockbusters, and there is a long way to go, but the start has been good," she added.
When asked about the differences between South Cinema and Hindi film industry was quick to point out some.
"I think there is a variety down south -- you still have the commercial variety with your songs and fights and dances, but then you also have some very strong roles for women. Malayalam cinema has a lot of those, very few in Tamil have that. It's a mixture actually," she said.
Asin will be seen in director Rohit Shetty's upcoming film 'Bol Bachchan' which is scheduled to be released on June 6, 2012.
