Dhanush at the Filmfare Awards South 2017 Press Meet

Dhanush may be seen in a dual role in Asuran, directed by Vetrimaaran. The Asuran team is currently busy with shoot.


This news was reported by Tamil The Hindu. However, there is no confirmation regarding this by the actor or the team. Dhanush has previously acted in a dual role in RS Durai Senthilkumar’s Kodi.

Last week, it was announced that Ken Karunas has a crucial role in the film. He was earlier seen in Nedunchaalai and Azhagu Kutti Chellam. The popular Malayalam actress Manju Warrier plays the female lead in the film. It is produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, the producers of Dhanush’s VIP 2. Music is composed by GV Prakash Kumar. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.

Asuran is an action drama adapted from a novel called Vekkai, written by author Poomani. The film went on floors recently, after the release of a poster with Dhanush and Manju Warrier in a retro look.

It is said that the makers are planning to complete shoot in a long, single schedule. The film is also reportedly a break from the Vada Chennai series, in which Dhanush plays an accidental gangster. Shoot for Vada Chennai 2 is expected to resume after the completion of Asuran.


On the work front, Dhanush has his second directorial, financed by Thenandal Film Studio. Nagarjuna, Srikanth, SJ Suryah star in this film. He plays the lead role as well. As yet untitled, the film went on floors earlier this year. Dhanush has also signed two films to be produced by Sathya Jyothi Films. One will be directed by RS Durai Senthil Kumar, with whom he had worked on Kodi, and the other by director Ram Kumar of Mudasupatti and Ratsasan fame.

He is also awaiting the release of the much delayed Enai Nokki Paayum Thota with Gautham Vasudev Menon. The film was supposed to release this year, but has once again been postponed. Megha Akash plays the female lead in this movie with music by Darbuka Siva.
