During his leisure time, DMK Supremo MK Stalin watched Dhanush's Asuran and heaped praise on the film.
The Tamil Nadu opposition party leader said: "Asuran is not just a film but a lesson. The film raised bold questions on caste chauvinistic society which try to grab the Panchami land. I congratulate Vetrimaaran for choosing the right landscape and dialogues. Dhanush has lived in his role, congratulations to him", tweeted Stalin.
Along with MK Stalin, many political leaders from DMK also watched the film in a theater situated in Tuticorin. Meanwhile, Asuran has become the career highest grosser for Dhanush in Tamil Nadu. The film has been declared as a huge blockbuster in the trade circuits.
