One of the hot discussions in the Tollywood circles from the last few days is about the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster Asuran. Directed by Vetrimaaran, Asuran featured Dhanush in the lead roles. This rural-based drama was a big hit in Tamil Nadu and it once again proved the acting prowess of powerhouse talent Dhanush.
The Telugu remake of the film will be jointly bankrolled by the original movie producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu and Suresh Babu. Daggubati Venkatesh will be donning the lead role in the film. The director is yet to get finalized though. Earlier, it got reported that Ohmkar will helm the film. But that didn't happen.
We hear that Suresh Babu is considering multiple directors and is yet to finalize one among them. The ace producer is planning to give the responsibilities to either Tharun Bhascker or Hanu Raghavapudi or Sagar K Chandra.
Tharun is planning to make a film with Venkatesh ever since the success of Pelli Choopulu. Apparently, the director has a bound script for the actor but Suresh Babu wants him to direct this remake first before taking the other film on floors. Meanwhile, Hanu is currently lying low with the failures of Lie and Padi Padi Leche Manasu. A remake would be a safe bet for him to bounce back.
On the flip side, Sagar K Chandra proved his mettle by interesting films like Prathinidhi and Appatlo Okadundevadu. He is one of the directors who can handle a subject like Asuran very well. Anyways, let's wait and see who among these three get the final opportunity to direct the film.
