Bollywood actress Asin got a taste of Mithun Chakraborty’s culinary skills during the shooting of ‘Housefull 2′.
The 25-year-old actress couldn’t help but sing praises of the actor-hotelier after he cooked a simple vegetable curry on the sets of the Sajid Khan directed sequel of ‘Houseful’.
“I was amazed with what Mithunda had cooked. I asked him for the recipe and he was so sweet to explain it to me as well. I wonder though whether I would be actually able to replicate what he had made. It was easily the most delicious curry I have ever had and the very fact that Mithunda had cooked it for us made it all the more special,” Asin said.
Though Asin and Mithun had been cordial with each other during the days spent on ‘Housefull 2′, it was food that further broke the ice for them. They struck a conversation and to the surprise of the actress, Mithun knew everything about her work not just in Bollywood but also down South.
The ‘Ready’ actress said that the veteran actor also made an observation that she came with just the right personality that allowed her to be paired opposite younger as well as older heroes. “Mithunda shared with me a few tips on enjoying a long and productive innings in the film industry. He didn’t have to do that but I guess that’s part of his intrinsic nature to take youngsters under his wings. He was so sweet and encouraging. There was so much fun on the sets when he was around,” she said.
Asin, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan in ‘Ghajini’, says she is looking forward to resuming all the fun in the next shooting schedule of the film. “Yes, it is going to be a month long schedule and I can’t wait to reunite with my London gang out here in Mumbai. I am sure it is going to be ‘house full’ of fun all over again,” she said.
