Recently, reports also suggested that the film has been stalled, and that Dhanush will be working on Asuran before beginning work on his second directorial again.
Speaking of the directorial earlier, Dhanush had said, “One must spend time and make all decisions during pre-production, which will lead to a smooth execution. This will save money and time. In fact, many were restless and asked me why I was spending so much time on pre-production for my project, and explained that things could be done on the set. I had to tell them that those decisions on the set involve money and put my foot down.”
