Venkatesh At The 'F2-Fun And Frustration' Audio Launch

After the success of his action-drama Venky Mama, actor Venkatesh Daggubati has announced his next, his 74th, Naarappa, the official remake of director Vetrimaaran‘s Asuran originally headlined by actor Dhanush.

Helmed by Sreekanth Addala, the announcement came last night from a tweet by Daggubati Suresh Babu’s Suresh Productions. Kalaipuli S Thanu‘s V Creations, which bankrolled the original, will also be co-producing the Telugu version.

Asuran which hit screens last year in October earned love both from the critics and audiences, with the film makers marking the film’s success with a success party.

The revenge-drama set against the backdrop of casteism was based on writer Poomani’s Vekkai.

While the cast of Naarappa is yet to be announced, Mani Sharma will be composing music, Shyam K Naidu will handle cinematography, and Marthand K Venkatesh will edit. Peter Hein has been roped in for stunts. Vetrimaaran will also be working on the project with the crew.

Vetrimaaran won the ‘Best Director’ award for Asuran at the Ananda Vikatan Awards 2019 and Zee Cine Awards Tamil 2020. While Dhanush, on the other hand, won the ‘Best Actor’ award for the same at the Ananda Vikatan Awards 2019 and at the Zee Cine Awards Tamil 2020. The film which recently completed 100 days since its release, was also screened at the 17th Chennai International Film Festival in December2019.

While the film fraternity and the fans of Venkatesh are happy with the announcement, the news did not go down well with the Dhanush fans.

Here is the poster of Naarappa.
