Asin Feisty Asin is set to show her spunky side in an upcoming bilingual film.

In the Indo-Japanese joint production called ‘19th Step’, Asin gets to work with Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan and Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano. Contrary to rumours, Asin won’t play a Japanese girl, but a traditional Indian girl in the film.

And she would soon leave for Kerala to learn the ancient martial art form of Kalaripayattu.



The Ghajini girl, who hails from Kerala, will train under traditional Kalaripayattu gurus to learn the fine points of the martial art.

To be made by Bharat Bala, ‘19th Step’ is a cross-culture romance between a Japanese man and an Indian girl. It will be made in Tamil and Japanese. Produced by Walt Disney, the movie will roll later this year.

Kalaripayattu:

One of the ancient martial arts of the world, Kalaripayattu originated in Kerala and is practiced mostly in South India. It involves choreographed martial arts sequences, kicks, grappling, and use of weapons.
