Naarappa First Look: Asuran is Naarappa in Telugu starring Venkatesh who looks fierce in posters.
The film is the remake of Tamil blockbuster Asuran starring Dhanush directed by Vetrimaaran.
Venkatesh Daggubati was last seen in Venky Mama, which turned out to be a mediocre film at the box office. The actor is now gearing up for his upcoming film, which is titled Naarappa. On January 21, he shared his look from the film, which went viral on social media.
Naarappa is the official Telugu remake of Tamil hit flick Asuran, directed by Vetri Maaran. The shooting of the Telugu remake began on January 21 in Hyderabad. Venkatesh shared his look from the film and it is the spitting image of Dhanush, who played the lead role in Asuran.
According to multiple reports, the story of Naarappa, directed by Srikanth Addala is set in Ananthapuram. Rumors are rife that the film is loosely based on the Karamchedu massacre which happened in 1985. During the incident, Dalits and Kammas landlords were involved in a tussle which resulted in the death of 6 Dalits.
However, the makers have not shed light on whether Naarappa is based on the Karamchedu massacre. Venkatesh's home production house, Suresh Production along with Asuran's producer Kalaipuli S Thanu are jointly bankrolling this venture.
