Speaking with the media at the success meet of Asuran, Tamil star Dhanush spoke about his dynamic with the director Vetrimaaran. He said that Vetrimaaran and he usually discussed a lot and did not easily zero in on a script. However, it was different for Asuran. 

The moment Dhanush heard about the character of Sivasamy, he pounced at the opportunity. He thanked Asuran's director for giving a free hand to execute his ideas and thoughts. Dhanush also stated that he faced new challenges every time he works with director Vetrimaaran. He added some praise for GV Prakash as well, saying that his background score was one of the reasons the film was as successful as it was right now.

Dhanush later revealed that he was in London during the release of the film and was worried about how the audience would react to it. He also thanked Mari Selvaraj, director of Pariyerum Perumal, for helping with the post-production of Asuran. He stated that it was not easy to find people like Mari Selvaraj, who came all the way from Chennai to London to help him on the dubbing. Dhanush revealed that Mari had nothing to do with Asuran. However, he showed a lot of love for the project. Because of him, Dhanush could get the Tirunelveli slang right and complete the dubbing in two nights.
