After being stranded for days in Himachal Pradesh, actress Manju Warrier is back to South with regard to her upcoming film. The actress was seen at the audio launch event of 'Asuran' held at Chennai on Wednesday.

Written and directed by Vetri Maaran, the film marks the debut of Manju Warrier in Tamil film industry. The movie also starring Dhanush, Balaji Sakthivel and Prakash Raj is based on the novel Vekkai by Poomani.

Manju kept it simple and looked elegant and graceful in a grey and red churidar. Dhanush was seen in a white shirt and mundu.

At the launch, Manju stated that the film was indeed a special one for her. “It was indeed a big affair to have stepped into Tamil industry with a film which had a strong team. Director Vetrimaran had done just a few films but each time he comes with a film, he manages to leave his signature.”

Talking about her co-star and actor Dhanush, she said, “He was a very dear friend earlier and now he has become my favourite co-actors. I have always been his biggest fan. I should thank him the most for making me feel at home. Everyone really enjoyed making this film. I am very sure that you will all like this film and I do hope that you all will like me as well.”

The producer of the film Kalaipuli S Thanu also applauded Manju Warrier for her generous nature. “Manju completed the film with just the advance amount and didn't ask any question on the remaining payment. It was in fact me who has been forcing her to get the pending salary,” he said.

Dhanush also raved praises on Manju Warrier. He said, “Though I know her for a long time, it's just with Asuran that we got a chance to work with her. While I was doing Kadhal Kondaein, Nagesh sir used to tell me that one should always watch out for actors with effortless performance. He told me that their performance will not be felt on the sets but they are the best ones. I felt the same while acting with Manju Warrier. No matter what's around her, she can switch on and switch off her character with ease but I can't do that," said the actor.

The movie is slated to hit screens on October 4.
