It was announced earlier that director Karthik Subbaraj and the National Award winning actor Dhanush would team up for a film. However, there was no news about this project, which gave rise to the speculation that it may have been dropped.
But it now looks like things are moving in the right direction for the filmmakers. According to latest reports, director Karthik Subbaraj held auditions in Madurai to sign actors for the project. While this indicates that the film’s backdrop may be Madurai, sources in the know say that shooting will be held in the US as well. The project, which remains untitled, is being bankrolled under the banner Y Not Studios.
In the meantime, Dhanush is busy with the Vettrimaran directorial Asuran and the untitled Durai Senthilkumar project.
The technical crew of Asuran includes GV Prakash Kumar for music, Velraj for cinematography and Vivek Harshan for editing. The film is being bankrolled by Kalaipuli S Dhanu under his banner V Creations.
The star cast also has Balaji Shaktivel. Asuran is reportedly adapted from novel called 'Vekkai'. Though the project was announced several months ago, the shooting began on Republic Day, January 26, and is progressing at a brisk pace.
Also, director RS Durai Senthilkumar will be directing the National Award winning actor Dhanush for the second time in his career. The first time they had associated as actor and director was for Kodi, a political action thriller.
Prior to Kodi, Dhanush had produced Edhir Neechal and Kaaki Sattai under his banner and both these films were directed by RS Senthilkumar. Interestingly, Dhanush shares the screen space with Sneha in this film and they are working together after a gap of 13 years. The shooting of this film, which has not been titled yet, began in Kuttralam and is progressing well.
