In December, Dhanush had released the first look and title of his fourth collaboration with Vetrimaaran — Asuran — after Pollathavan, Aadukalam and Vada Chennai. The poster features the actor in a different look with beetle leaf-tainted teeth. A source says Asuran is based on the novel, Vekkai. Ever since the project was announced, speculations were rife about the music director.
Earlier, it was said Yuvan Shankar Raja could be the composer. However, now it has been confirmed that GV Prakash will compose the music for the film.
Prakash was the music director of Dhanush’s Aadukalam, and they are teaming up again after eight years for Asuran. It was rumoured that they had a rift post Mayakkam Enna, but it looks like everything has been sorted now.
