The film is said to be a revenge thriller based on the Tamil novel ‘Vekkai.’
Vetrimaaran’s Asuran, which marks the filmmaker’s fourth collaboration with Dhanush, is currently in its final leg of shooting.
Earlier reports emerged that the film will also see a cameo role by Vijay Sethupathi, which the director has refuted. He said, that the actor is not part of the project and was not even approached by the team.
Dhanush will be seen in a role of a character who seeks to avenge the death of his father.
He will be seen playing dual roles as both the father and son. The film also features popular filmmaker Balaji Sakthivel, best known for directing the hit Bharath and Sandhya starrer Kadhal, as the antagonist.
This project marks the Tamil debut of Manju Warrier, who has paired up with Dhanush for the first time.
Upon completing Asuran, Dhanush will return to the sets of his next project with director Durai Senthil Kumar of Kodi fame. Interestingly, this film too features Dhanush in dual roles and marks his reunion with actor Sneha after a decade.
