Asuran Telugu remake Naarappa shooting stopped due to coronavirus threat
Last year saw Dhanush deliver a thumping performance in the critically-acclaimed Tamil film, Asuran, under Vetri Maaran's direction, which also turned into a smash success at the box office making it the highest-grossing film in the National Award-winning actor's career to date with Manju Warrer playing the female lead and G. V. Prakash Kumar's music become a craze among fans.
Post the success of Asuran, it was announced by producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu that he would be jointly producing the Telugu remake, Naarappa, under his V Creations banner with Suresh Productions. Telugu superstar Venkatesh is reprising Dhanush's role in Naarappa alongside Priyamani and is being directed by Sreekanth Addala.
Production on the upcoming Telugu action drama had kicked off towards the end of January this year, but has now been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic that has caused grave distress and loss of life across the world. The Twitter handle of Suresh Productions dropped a couple of tweets informing fans on the decision to stop the shoot of Narappa saying, "The longest shoot schedule in the history of Suresh Productions, "Narappa" has now been paused in view of threat of COVID-19. The team is heading back to Hyderabad today. The shoot shall resume once the condition outside stablizes. We also hope that you all avoid social gatherings as much as possible. Stay safe and healthy,". Check out the tweets below:
