It's official. Srikanth Addala will direct Venkatesh next. This project is the remake of Dhanush-starring Tamil action-family drama 'Asuran'.
Producer D Suresh Babu has suggested that the film won't highlight the caste factor. However, it will subtly address the issue of caste discrimination. "Mainstream Telugu movies like 'Jayam Manaderaa' have indeed dealt with the issue of the oppression of lower castes. We are not going to remake 'Asuran' as a potboiler. Its essence and feel will be retained to the T," Babu said in an interview.
Addala is known for 'Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu'. His 'Brahmotsavam' is one of the biggest disasters in Mahesh Babu's career.
