When actor Asin announced that she was in a relationship and would soon be marrying Rahul Sharma, the CEO of Micromax, what struck everyone is the uncanny resemblance her real life love story had with blockbuster movie Ghajini.

Surya and Aamir Khan played the protagonist ‘Sanjay’ in the Tamil and Hindi versions of the movie, a mobile tycoon.

In an interview to Vanitha, Asin speaks for the first time about the bizarre similarities.

“In Ghajini, Sanjay used to say that he wanted to make his company no.1 in India. When I had first met Rahul, his dream was the same. The mobile company’s logo in the movie was orange in colour and so is Micromax’s. Rahul was using the same car that Aamir’s character was using in the movie. In the movie Sanjay buys an apartment for his girlfriend. When our relationship first started, Rahul told me that he was buying a penthouse in Mumbai as he now had ties with the city,” the actor told Vanitha.

Asin quips that she asked Murugadoss, Ghajini’s script writer and director whether he ‘actually wrote the script using a pen.’

In the freewheeling interview, Asin acknowledges that Akshay Kumar introduced her to Rahul. “We were on an early morning flight for watching Champions Trophy. I later realised that the man Akshay introduced as his friend Rahul was the man who headed the company which was sponsoring the tournament and owned the chartered flight.”

From Asin’s description, the love story seems to be an otherwise normal one with Akshay Kumar and even Salman Khan playing matchmakers. But one news that won’t enthrall Asin’s fans is that the actor may not be acting in too many movies from now.
