It’s already confirmed that Victory Venkatesh is stepping into the shoes of Dhanush for the Telugu remake of Asuran. While Priyamani is likely to reprise Manju Warrier’s role from the original, ‘Kotha Bangaru Lokam’ fame Srikanth Addala has been confirmed as the director. During the promotions of Venky Mama, one can notice the rugged look of the 58-year-old actor and he seems to be prepping up for the role. According to sources, the shooting of the film will take off from the last week of January.
Meanwhile, grapevine suggests that the working title of Asuran remake is finalised as ‘Narappa’. Set against the backdrop of the rustic Rayalaseema region, the action-drama will showcase Venkatesh in two drastic avatars. While the portions of the elder role will be shot in the initial schedules, Venky will take his time and lose some weight for the younger portions.
