Popular actor Asin is likely to face a ban on acting in Tamil films for having shot a portion of her upcoming Hindi flick ‘Ready’ in Sri Lanka. A decision on her ban is expected to be made by the Tamil film industry in a couple of days.
‘Ready’ is the remake of the Telugu film by the same name, in which Salman Khan and Asin reprise the roles of Ram and Genelia respectively.
Asin’s fate in the Tamil industry will be decided at a meeting of all federations.Asin has returned to Tamil films after a two-year break, with Vijay’s next film ‘Kaavalkaran’.
The ban is being mooted owing to the Tamil film industry’s boycott of Sri Lanka for the inhuman treatment meted out to the Tamil refugees in the island country. The statement issued by the Tamil film industry on May 28 about participation of actors in IFFA 2010, held in Sri Lanka, however, does not ban any actor for shooting for a non-south Indian film in Sri Lanka. It states, "From now, shooting for south Indian films and cultural events will not be held in Sri Lanka." It added that actors and technicians who participate in IFFA 2010 would not be extended professional cooperation by the south Indian film industry.
