Director Sasikumar has been acting in back to back movies but all of them happen to be his own Company productions. For the first time, he has decided to play the lead in another production house’s venture and the movie has been titled Asuravadham.

The film will be directed by Maruthupandian who made the realistic movie Chennai Ungalai Anbudan Varaverkirathu. The promising director seems to have made the right script to Sasikumar’s image in Kollywood and it is expected to be a story based in a city, not the usual village setup.

Reportedly, Sasikumar has been paid Rs. 4 crore as salary for this movie which is quite high unlike any of his other movies and is being promoted as a big budget film.
