For the Kerala born actor Asin, Onam is one of the big festivals that she celebrates with gusto. The actor, whose childhood and schooling was in Kerala, gets very excited with the very thought of the harvest festival. Though a busy schedule has kept her away from her home in recent years, she tries to spend the day with family in Mumbai, if not Kerala. “It gets difficult to celebrate festivals when you have a packed shooting schedule. Even this time, the chances of spending the day with my family seemed bleak as I’m stationed in Rajasthan till October, but fortunately I managed to get two days off around Onam.
