The film features Sameera Reddy, Bhavana and yesteryear hero Suresh along with Ajith in the cast. Music is by Bharadwaj. There is another reason for the postponement of Asal. The producers went out of their way to give a free run to their Annan Rajinikanth"s daughter Soundarya"s maiden film Goa scheduled to release on January 29.
Ajith's much-awaited film Asal is confirmed for the release on February 12th. Produced by Sivaji Films and directed by Saran, Ramkumar and Prabhu, the producers, are planning for a big release across Tamil Nadu and parts of overseas, where Tamil films have a huge fan-following. Initially Asal was supposed to hit the screens on February 5, but has been pushed forward by a week.
