Karan Johar lauds Asuran; Heaps praise on Dhanush’s performance!
Bollywood supermo Karan Johar has often expressed his admiration for stars and filmmakers from South. In a recent interview, Karan opened up about how impressed he was by Vetrimaaran’s ‘Asuran’ and Dhanush’s performance in it. He also expressed his immense admiration for director Atlee, whom he called the magician of masala cinema.
Speculations are there about ‘Asuran’ getting remade in Hindi. Karan’s Dharma Productions is said to have bagged the rights but there have been no confirmation yet. The film is already being remade in Telugu and Kannada. In Telugu, Venkatesh is playing the lead role. The film has been titled as ‘Naarappa’ and Srikanth Addala is directing it.
Talks for the Kannada version are still in the early stages. Superstar Shiva Rajkumar has expressed his interest to star in the film. Reports suggest that Vetrimaaran, the director of ‘Asuran’, will be venturing into the Kannada industry as a producer with this film and Jacob Verghese will be directing it.
