After scoring back to back successes last year with F2 and Venky Mama, Daggubati Venkatesh is now prepping up to start shooting for his next film, which is going to be an official remake of Tamil hit Asuran. Srikanth Addala is helming this project while Suresh Babu is bankrolling it. The shoot of the film will start rolling from this month itself.
According to the latest sources, the makers have roped in Priyamani
as the female lead of this film. Apparently, they thought that Priyamani will be the apt choice for the character as it is a content-oriented role and not a glamorous one. An official announcement will be out soon. This will be the first film in the combination of Venkatesh and Priyamani.
It will also be a prestigious project for Priyamani as the actress is acting in a big project after a long time. It seems that she will take part in the shoot right from the first schedule itself. Mani Sharma is composing the tunes for this movie.
Directed by Vetrimaaran, Asuran featured Dhanush and Manju Warrier in the lead roles. The film was a blockbuster in Tamil Nadu and collected more than Rs. 100 crores at the box-office.
