Actor Dhanush, who is currently shooting for Vetrimaaran’s Tamil revenge drama Asuran, shared a new poster on Monday evening. It guarantees that the film will be high on action and bloodshed. Dhanush took to Twitter to share the poster in which he’s seen wearing a blood-stained shirt and wielding a sickle.

He further wrote that the shoot of final schedule began from Monday. He wrote: “#Asuran .. final schedule .. from today.”


Asuran marks the fourth-time collaboration between Dhanush and Vetrimaaran. Their last film together was Vada Chennai. Asuran also marks the Tamil debut of well-known Malayalam actor Manju Warrier.

The film is based on Tamil novel Vekkai, written by Poomani. It is tipped to be a revenge drama that traces the fight of an oppressed community against those oppressing them.

The makers are yet to reveal complete cast and crew details of the project. However, recent reports indicate that Tamil director Balaji Sakthivel, best known for directing award-winning films Kadhal and Vazhakku En 18/9, has been roped in for a crucial role, and according to the grapevine, he plays the antagonist.

The report is yet to be verified but reliable sources close to Vetrimaaran haven’t denied it. The film, which was announced last December soon after the release of Vada Chennai, also stars Ken Karunas in a pivotal role.

Last seen playing a local ruffian in Maari 2, Dhanush will be seen playing a daily wage labourer in Asuran, and he will be seen in a fierce avatar. Being produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu under the banner of V Creations, the film has music by GV Prakash Kumar.
