So happy to be making my debut in Tamil cinema opposite you.” The Tamil film Charlie Chaplin 2 is a sequel to Prabhudheva’s Charlie Chaplin which released in 2002.
Adah Sharma made her debut in Telugu with Puri Jagannadh’s Heart Attack which starred Nithiin in the lead role.

Charlie Chaplin is a 2002 Tamil comedy film directed by Sakthi Chidambaram, starring Prabhu Ganesan and Prabhu Deva. The film’s commercial success led to remakes in Hindi (No Entry), Telugu (Pellam Oorelithe), Malayalam (Happy Husbands), Kannada (Kalla Malla Sulla), Marathi (No Entry Pudhe Dhoka Aahey) and Bengali (Kelor Kirti). Prabhu Dheva won the Tamil Nadu State Film Award Special Prize for his performance in the film. The plot of the movie is inspired by the 1975 movie Yarukku Maappillai Yaro. It is the first Indian movie to be officially remade in six Indian languages and is the second highest remade movie amongst Indian films after Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana.
Besides Charlie Chaplin 2, Prabhudheva also has Mercury which is directed by Karthik Subbaraj. The film is said to be a silent thriller and will hardly any dialogues, making one of the most unique films in South Indian cinema. On his decision to get on board with Prabhudheva, Subbaraj said, “I like Prabhudheva as an actor. We have seen him more as a choreographer and director lately but I felt he has a lot of untapped potential as an actor as the films he has featured in previously are all about song, dance and comedy. He has never played an antagonist before. When I approached him with the script and said that it didn’t have any songs or even dialogues, he was kicked about it and immediately came on board.”
