Southern actress Asin Thottumkal, who featured in Hindi films like "London Dreams", "Ready" and "Housefull 2", wants to reach out to the masses with the help of commercial movies.

"I am satisfied with the work I have done till now. These are my initial years in Bollywood and I want to reach out to maximum number of people and only commercial films can help me achieve that," Asin told IANS.

"Creative satisfaction is important for me. Right now I am looking for characters which can give me creative satisfaction within the commercial format," she said.

The 26-year-old made her Bollywood debut in 2008 with "Ghajini", a Hindi remake of her own Tamil film of the same name. Before foraying into Bollywood, she was already an established name down south.

She made her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan in "Ghajini" and in her four years in the industry, she has already featured with actors like Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar.

Now she has "Bol Bachchan". Directed by Rohit Shetty, it is coming out Friday.

Asin says her character is down to earth and did not require homework.

"Playing Sania was not much of a challenging task for me. A lot of homework or research from my side was not needed. But I have to say that she is the most down to earth and grounded character in the film," she said.

Even though inspired by the 1979 comic flick "Golmaal", Asin says that she had no prior reference for her character and relied purely on the script.

"I had nothing to fall back on. I only relied on what was written in the script. The basic idea is that it is inspired from 'Gol Maal' where the females did not have much to do."

"But it has been rewritten and does not stick to the original. So, I could not rely on the old one and had to go by the script which was written for this movie," she said.

After featuring in three back to back comedies "Ready", "Housefull 2", "Bol Bachchan", the actress clears the air about sticking just to comic roles and says, "It is just a co-incident" and that she doesn't have "a special affinity towards comedy".

"But I like doing comedy, especially when I have great co-stars like Ajay and Abhishek Bachchan on my side. It's fun and entertaining but obviously I would like to try out other genres as well," she said.
