Tamil cinema has witnessed director Vetrimaaran and actor Dhanush belt out hit after hit over the years with their films which include Pollathavan, Aadukalam and last year’s Vada Chennai. Dhanush had also collaborated as the producer for Vetrimaaran’s Visaranai under his Wunderbar Films banner with the action cop drama going on to become a critical and commercial success. Now, the two are coming back together once again with the much-awaited, Asuran, announced to hit screens on October 4 in light of the Ayudha Pooja holidays. Being produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu’s V Creations banner, the music for the film has been composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar with the team now dropping an announcement that the first single titled 'Kathiri Poovazhagi' sung by Velmurugan with lyrics penned by Egadasi will be released tomorrow (28.08.2019).
