Dhanush and Vetri Maaran’s Asuran has not only received critical and commercial acclaim, but the film has also bowled over Telugu star Mahesh Babu. The Srimanthudu actor took to Twitter to praise Asuran and called it a raw and intense film.

Mahesh Babu wrote, “Asuran…raw real and intense… Cinema at its best ?? Congratulations @dhanushkraja @VetriMaaran @prakashraaj @gvprakash @theVcreations @VelrajR and entire team #Asuran (sic)”

Asuran is a revenge drama which revolves around a teenage son of a farmer who kills an upper class landlord.

While the film is getting rave reviews, director Vetri Maaran isn’t too happy with Asuran.

At the Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI), Vetri Maaran, during a panel discussion said, “I wasn’t happy the way I completed Asuran or abandoned the film as it isn’t complete. People are liking it and it’s making money and I’m glad but I’m not happy with how I had to finish it. I was told it had to release in 40 days when I still had 22 days of shoot left.”

Asuran is Vetri Maaran’s fastest film ever as he revenge thriller went on floors early this year and released a couple of months later.

The film, which also stars Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj, hit the screens on October 4. And actor Mahesh Babu is in complete awe of Asuran.
