Mumbai: It's not often that one is announced as a member of a legendary family. However, that's a privilege Asin will cherish for the rest of her life. During an outdoor shoot of Houseful 2 in London, the Kapoor brothers Rishi and Randhir publicly referred to the actress as their daughter.

Interestingly, Asin's bonding with the Kapoors is due to Rishi playing her father and Randhir her uncle in Sajid Khan's film for producer Sajid Nadiadwala.

"However, she not only enjoyed conversing with them before the shoot began, but she had also won their affections in the initial days," says a unit member, adding, "While the entire cast was like one big family, Asin was particularly fond of Randhirji and Rishiji. They too doted on her."

He recounts one memorable incident. One evening, Asin finished shooting a little later than the Kapoor brothers. So after pack-up, she left for the restaurant where she was to join Randhir, Rishi and a few others for dinner.
Our source tells us that when she reached the venue and was looking around for them, the manager asked if he could help her.

"That's when Randhirji stated that she's their daughter," recalls our source, adding that Asin was surprised and also felt a sense of pride at the same time. "Throughout that evening, everyone else from the cast addressed her as a Kapoor beti."

Asin also got to meet the Kapoor brothers' mum Krishna Raj and sister Reema Jain when they visited London during the schedule. Although she couldn't meet Rishi's wife Neetu Kapoor, she made it a point to wish her on her birthday.

The actress, however, was not keen on talking about her special bond with the Kapoors. But when pursued, all she said was, "I have great respect for Rishiji and Randhirji. It was an honour working with them together in Houseful 2."
