One of the biggest blockbusters of Kollywood in 2019, was the Dhanush starrer Asuran! This movie, which was directed by Vetri Maaran, marked veteran Mollywood actress Manju Warrier's debut in Tamil Cinema. Based on the Tamil novel Vekkai, by author Poomani, Asuran garnered both critical and commercial acclaim not just for the actors but all those involved with the movie. It was almost instantly announced that this movie would be remade in Telugu and later it came to light that Victory Venkatesh would be playing the lead. There were a lot of speculations over who the female lead would be and we now have a confirmation on this.
After initially considering Shriya Saran and Anushka Shetty to play the female leads, the makers of the Asuran Telugu remake have now roped in Priyamani for this role. Priyamani is a National Award winner, who has worked in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi movies. Her last Telugu outing was the 2016 release Mana Oori Ramayanam. She is now very actively returning to acting with two movie releases in 2019; one each in Malayalam and Kannada. Priyamani also forayed onto the digital platform by playing an important role in the Amazon Prime web-series The Family Man, which had Manoj Bajpayee in the lead. We also hear that Priyamani would be joining the shoot of the Asuran remake from the 22nd of January.
Venkatesh Daggubati seems to be going through a purple patch in his career. His two 2019 releases - F2: Fun and Frustration and Venky Mama, both turned out to become huge hits. Venkatesh would be coming together again with his Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu director Srikanth Addala, for the Telugu remake of Asuran. This project is to be jointly bankrolled by Suresh Babu and Kalaipuli S Thanu, under their Suresh Productions and V Creations banner, with shoot expecting to begin soon. This project's release is being planned for the summer of this year! Venky also has the sequel of F2: Fun and Frustration, in the pipeline. Keep watching this space for updates...
