Wednesday 03rd April 2019 07:35 EDT

In a pleasant surprise, Dhanush and Vetri Maaran surprised everyone recently by announcing their next project before starting 'Vada Chennai 2'. Titled 'Asuran', it is rumoured that the upcoming project will be a commercial entertainer. Days after the announcement, the first-look posters of the movie have been released and we are intrigued!

Dhanush can be seen sporting a unique makeover, and given the multi-faceted actor's panache for quirk, we just know he's up to something. In an interview last week, filmmaker Vetri Maaran filled us in on the details. Dhanush will play a dual role, taking up the characters of both father and son in the movie which is based on a novel called Vekkai, written by Poomani.

He said Dhanush will portray the role of a 45 year old villager. Also to be seen in the movie is actor Pasupathi, playing the role of female lead Manju Warrier's brother and a well-wisher of their on-reel family. Another pleasant surprise is the acting debut of director Balaji Shakthi, reportedly as the antagonist.

On the work front, Dhanush has several other movies in the pipeline. He is currently gearing up for the release of 'Enai Nokki Paayum Thota'. He also has a second directorial venture scheduled next.
