The makers unveiled five different Naarappa Movie First Look Posters which feature Victory Venkatesh in a blood-soaked, intense avatar. “Venkatesh will be seen in two different avatars in the film, and the team will first start filming the portions which have him as a middle-aged man. He has grown a beard and will be sporting a salt-and-pepper look to suit the part. He will be accompanied by Priyamani, who plays his wife in the film.
Once they complete these portions, the team will take a break for a month to let Venkatesh lose a few kilos for the younger part,” a source was quoted in the report. While Venkatesh will reprise Dhanush’s role from the original, Priyamani will slip into the shoes of Manju Warrier’s character from Asuran.
