The trailer for Prabhudheva starrer Mercury is finally out and we are bewildered. The film has no dialogues and looks like a never-seen-before thriller. The audience has usually scene Prabhudheva doing lighthearted films and he is known more for his dancing skills. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Pinkvilla, Prabhudheva revealed why he took such a peculiar role.

When asked what made him accept a film like Mercury, he answered, “I said yes because of the director, Karthik Subbaraj. He is the only one who made me take it. In the first meeting itself, I immediately said yes.”

Prabhudheva himself is a director. So when asked if he guided Karthik while shooting the films and provided him with any tips, he said, “I learned from him. I never gave tips. He is a well-known director. 3 films he has done and they are amazing and also hit. He is a very good director. You don’t have to do anything; just go, sit, what he tells, do it and come out.”

When asked which about the challenging scenes he shot in the film, the actor said, “Many scenes were there. It’s a night shooting so whatever scenes they did after 3 o’clock it was challenging. It was very tough in the night to do it.”

Prabhudheva has been working in the film industry for more than 2 decades now. We asked him what are his thoughts on the same, he answered, “I am still learning. It’s good.”

Mercury will be one of the first horror-genre movies which will have no dialogues and will be released in Tamil, Telugu and HIndi simultaneously. Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Mercury stars Prabhudeva, Sananth Reddy, Deepak Parmesh, Shashank Puroshathaman, Anish Padmanabhan, Indhuja Ravishandran, Gajaraj SP and Ramya Nambeesan. Mercury is slated to be released on April 13, 2018 worldwide.
