Dhanush's upcoming film Asuran had already garnered considerable attention after the release of the first look poster. Recently, the actor posted on social media that he will begin filming for Asuran on 26 January. The actor also announced that Malayalam actor Manju Warrier would be playing the female lead in the film. The feature will mark Warrier's Tamil debut.

Dhanush was also scheduled to begin shooting for the sequel of Vada Chennai but reportedly, he wants to take a break from the character before he could get into the zone again. Asuran, thus, came in as a welcome change for Dhanush. The feature sees the actor collaborate with Vada Chennai helmer Vetrimaaran, who also led the actor in Pollathavan and Aadukalam. Asuran will be the fourth feature that Dhanush and Vetrimaaran will collaborate on. Their best known work includes names such as Aadukalam, that won the actor a National Award.  GV Prakash Kumar has now been attached as the music composer of the Dhanush-starrer. The first look featured the actor as a simpleton with a heavy moustache and yellow-ing teeth.

Asuran may well release sometime this year.
