The upcoming Vetrimaaran’s film Asuran is an action drama featuring some of the leading stars of the south. It has Dhanush and Manju Warrier in the lead roles and it also marks the debut of the latter in Tamil cinema. Dhanush and Vetrimaaran had last come together for the film Vada Chennai which turned out to be a blockbuster.
