Venky Takes No Remuneration For This Film!
The upcoming film ‘Venky Mama’ has been wrapped up recently and Venkatesh is now getting ready to shoot for his next film ‘Asuran’ remake. The title is yet to be confirmed. The movie is in the pre-production stage. This intense crime drama will be directed by Sreekanth Addala who earlier directed SVSC and Brahmotsavam. Sreekanth is a director who prefers light-hearted family movies with good emotions. But his decision to make this crime drama has been surprising for all. Suresh Babu is producing the film along with Tamil producer Kalaipuli S Thanu who produced the original film Asuran.
Suresh Babu has selected Sreekanth to direct the film because he is taking just Rs 2 lakhs as salary per month. And also it is revealed that Sreekanth is going to wrap up the film in a budget of just Rs 13 Cr. According to the sources, Venkatesh is also not taking any remuneration for the film as he is planning to take the share from profits. In the original film, Dhanush played the lead and Manju Warrior played his wife. In the Telugu remake, Shriya Saran is being considered to play the lead role, but there are no official confirmations.
Shriya and Venky have acted together in Subash Chandra Bose and Gopala Gopala. She was also seen in an item number in Venky’s film ‘Tulasi’. Earlier, Anushka has been approached to play the lead role in Asuran remake but she has rejected the offer.
