Asin: I Don’t need an Item Song

Actor Asin is one of the few actors in Bollywood, who is yet to do an item number. Ask the actor about it and she says that though not averse to doing such songs, she just doesn’t feel the need to succumb to the pressure of doing it. “First of all, I just don’t like that word. ‘Item’ is so derogatory, as if the actor is some commodity. And secondly, I don’t understand why an actor has to do any such song to add to the popularity. Will I be any less of an actor or more if I dance on any special song? I am not saying that I am averse to doing any such song, but I don’t see why I need to do one either?” quips Asin.
