The trailer of Dhanush’s highly anticipated upcoming Tamil revenge thriller Asuran (2019), directed by Vetrimaaran, was released on Sunday, 8 September. Going by the visuals of the video, the film promises to be a riveting revenge saga.

In the opening shot of the trailer, we see Dhanush walking in slow motion with a sickle in his hand. Without revealing much of the story, the trailer with its visuals hints that the film is not for the faint-hearted.

Dhanush plays dual roles and we get a glimpse of both the characters of father and son he essays in the film

In one of the crucial scenes in the trailer, Dhanush tells his young son that if we own farmlands, they will seize it; if we carry money, they will snatch it. But if we have education, they can never take it from us.

Asuran might be Vetrimaaran’s most violent film yet. It features Dhanush in the role of a daily wage labourer who decides to fight for his right and equality. The film features director Balaji Sakthivel as the antagonist. Malayalam actor Manju Warrier makes her Tamil debut via this project.

Being produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu under the banner of V Creations, the film is gearing up for release on 2 October.

Meanwhile, Dhanush has two more projects in his kitty apart from a rumoured Hindi film with Aanand L Rai. He’s currently shooting for his upcoming project Pattas with director Durai Senthil Kumar. The film also features him in dual roles and co-stars Sneha and Mehreen Pirzada in key roles.

Dhanush also has a film with director Mari Selvaraj of Pariyerum Perumal fame. If everything goes as planned, he will begin shooting for this project from November.
