Asuran Telugu remake: Watch Narappa trailer here
The highly acclaimed Tamil film ‘Asuran’ is being remade in Telugu as ‘Narappa’. Veteran star Venkatesh is playing the titular role, which was done by Dhanush in the original. Manju Warrier’s role from ‘Asuran’ is being essayed by Priyamani. The Telugu version is all set for direct release on Amazon Prime Video tomorrow (July 20). Its trailer has been shared online and it looks like a honest remake.
‘Narappa’ is directed by Srikanth Addala. From the trailer, it is evident that makers have gone for a scene-by-scene remake without any major changes. The film tells the story of a lower caste family’s fight for survival. Director Vetrimaaran adapted ‘Asuran’ from Poomani’s famous novel ‘Vekkai’. Dhanush and Manju Warrier’s performances in the film were widely appreciated. The former even went on to win the National Award for Best Actor.
As ‘Asuran’ gets remade in Telugu, both Venkatesh and Priyamani are expected to come up with equally brilliant performances. Others in the cast include Rao Ramesh, Nassar, Karthik Rathnam, Ammu Abhirami and Rajeev Kanakala.
