And it's a great news for all Dhanush fans, as the makers of Asuran has finally revealed the release date of the film, which is October 4. Though we are quite surprised, that why didn't they opted for October 2, as it would have given them the advantage of a national holiday of Gandhi Jayanti and always an extended weekend of 5 days. Interestingly, makers of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's War and Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy have decided to release their films on October 2.
"Asuran", which marks the fourth collaboration of Dhanush and Vetrimaaran after "Pollathavan", "Aadukalama and "Vada Chennai", is based on the Tamil novel "Vekkai" by Poomani. In the film, Dhanush plays dual roles and will be seen as father and son. Manju Warrier plays the leading lady and this project marks her Tamil debut.
Actor Dhanush, who is also an established singer, has crooned a raw, soothing number for the film. Actor-composer GV Prakash Kumar earlier took to Twitter to announce that he has recorded a song called "Pollathaboomi", featuring voices of Dhanush, Ken Karunas and Tee Jay."Dhanush, Ken and Tee Jay sing a song together in Yugabharathi's lyrics. A peppy track on way for Vetrimaaran," tweeted Prakash, who previously made Dhanush sing in his films such as "Pollathavan" and "Aadukalam".
According to the industry grapevine, filmmaker Balaji Sakthivel has been roped in to play the antagonist in the film, which has been produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu. Post Asuran, Dhanush will be seen in director Durai Senthil Kumar's Pattas in which he again plays a double role. So, are you excited for Asuran? Tweet to u @bollywood_life.
