Venkatesh Daggubati, who has already impressed his fans and movie lovers with his screen presence and performance skills, is getting ready to start the shoot of his next upcoming drama, the Telugu remake of Asuran. The senior actor will step into the shoes of Dhanush for the remake of Asuran. Currently, the makers of this remake are in the hunt of a female lead. Earlier it was heard that the makers are planning to rope Anushka Shetty to essay the role of Venkatesh’ wife in this film, but she has refused to act in this film. ‘Kotha Bangaru Lokam’ fame Srikanth Addala is on the board to helm Asuran remake in which Venkatesh will play the lead role. According to the latest buzz in the film industry, Venkatesh has already started the preparation of his part for Asuran remake.
At the press meet of his upcoming multi starrer Venky Mama, Venkatesh Daggubati was spotted in the rugged look and he seems to be prepping up for the role. At the press meet, Venkatesh also talked about Asuran remake and said, “ The number of people from the film industry has advised me not to do Asuran remake. The people have doubted my ability in the past too. But it took me just half an hour to decide about doing Asuran remake, which will be directed by Srikanth Addala.”
Venkatesh added that Asuran remake is the right film for him after F2- Fun and Frustration and Venky Mama.
Earlier the people have said that Venkatesh is popular for comedy and family entertainers but in Asuran remake, he will be seen in the contrasting roles, which is a high voltage action drama which is not a cup of tea for Babu Bangaram. But Venkatesh who is a versatile actor is confident that he will score a hit with Asuran remake.
