Victory Venkatesh is all set to step into the shoes of Asuran remake which is named as a cult classic in Tamil. The makers zeroed in Srikanth Addala to direct the project and the pre-production work kick-started recently. Now, the hunt for the leading lady is on. Manju Warrier essayed the female lead’s role in Asuran and her role is quite crucial in the film. Names like Shriya Saran and Kajal are considered initially.
The makers are said to have been keen on roping in Anushka for this de-glam role. The talks are in the final stages and an announcement on this would be made soon. Anushka too is in the hunt for challenging roles and is not ready for commercial flicks after she kept putting weight. Venkatesh will be seen in a makeover and he already started working on his looks. Suresh Productions and V Creations will bankroll this project jointly.
