The Vetrimaaran-Dhanush combo has emerged to be one of the most successful combos in Tamil cinema history, with the duo at present working on their upcoming next, Asuran, which is an adaptation of the acclaimed Tamil novel, Vekkai.

This is the fourth occasion Dhanush and Vetrimaaran have joined hands for a film after their previous ventures, Pollathavan, Aadukalam and last year’s hit action gangster drama, Vada Chennai.
