From the past few weeks, it is being reported that Daggubati Venkatesh is going to remake Asuran in Telugu. Directed by Vetrimaaran and starring Dhanush in the lead role, Asuran is a Tamil film that did great business at the box office. Kalaipuli S. Thanu, who bankrolled the original film, will also produce this remake, along with Suresh Babu.
Ohmkar has been reportedly signed up to helm this remake. According to the latest grapevine, Shriya Saran will play the leading lady role in this movie. The talks are currently going on with the actress and she is yet to sign the dotted lines.
Shriya has earlier worked with Venky in the films Subash Chandra Bose and Gopala Gopala. She also did an item song in the film Tulasi. With Gopala Gopala, the couple earned a lot of name and appreciation for their performance.
The makers will announce the project officially soon, once everything falls in place. Currently, Venky is busy wrapping up the works of his next film Venky Mama. The film unit of Venky Mama starts the promotions today by announcing the details of the first single release.
