Suresh Production acquiring the ‘Asuran’ remake rights and Victory Venkatesh announcing that he would star in the remake has left many of the film experts in shock. The talented actor known for his comedy timing and heart-wrenching emotional scenes was apparently impressed by the storyline and lead Dhanush’s acting which drew him towards the remake. While the action drama from Vetri Maaran struck gold at the worldwide box-office, Suresh is all busy setting the grounds for its Tollywood remake with the most talented cast and crew. Right from the announcement, the tinsel town has all eyes on the director who would helm the project. And if the information from trusted sources is to be believed, ‘Andala Rakshasi’ fame Hanu Raghavapudi is roped in for the remake.
On the other hand, the cinephiles and film critics were in splits of how the Venky-Hanu duo would cope up with this rustic and intense storyline which is new for both them. While we saw Venky mostly in comedy, sentimental and action genre, Hanu hit to fame with his feel-good movies like ‘Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha’, ‘Lie’, ‘Padi Padi Leche Manasu’. The reasons why Venky and Suresh are considering Hanu are yet to be known. Rumours that Shriya Saran is locked for the female lead are doing rounds in social media.
