In the last couple of weeks, Tollywood producer Suresh Babu and actor Victory Venkatesh have been at the center of the talks going on in the industry for the Telugu remake of the blockbuster Tamil film Asuran which featured Dhanush, who played the lead character of the movie.
Actor Venkatesh who is likely to play the intense character of Dhanush for the remake, will be seen in a completely raw avatar which is unlike any character he has played in his earlier films. Venky who is known for his mass acclaim in Telugu films is now in search of the right director who can deliver a perfect film with Venky’s raw character for the Asuran Telugu remake.
Victory Venkatesh and Suresh Babu who are looking for the perfect director are now considering director Hanu Raghavapudi for directing the remake, according to the latest buzz. Trying to get the right director to direct the remake Suresh Babu and Victory Venkatesh have been considering a few directors like Ohmkar and V.V Vinayak but are now considering Hanu as the frontrunner for the Asuran Telugu remake.
Hanu Raghavapudi who has previously directed movies like Andala Rakshasi, Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha, Lie and Padi Padi Leche Manasu has only been able to deliver one hit film out of the 4 films he has directed so far.
Is this a gamble worth taking for Suresh Babu and Venkatesh for the Telugu remake of Asuran, only time will tell. Till then let us wait for the official confirmation on the remake.
