Other details related to the film are still under wraps. Prabhudheva will also be seen in the Tamil film Charlie Chaplin 2 along with actress Adah Sharma. Prabhudheva was last seen in Karthik Subbaraj;s Mercury which was a horror thriller. The film had a good run but faced few hurdles before release due to the strike in Tamil film industry.
Prabhudheva hasn’t had a great run in Tamil cinema with most of his previous films being average or below that. His last three releases in Tamil – Mercury, Lakshmi and Gulebakavali – have all received cold response from audience after they failed to impress. Prabhudheva will now look to set things straight things for himself in Tamil cinema with this AC Mugil directorial which will have him don the khakhi for the first time in his career.
Prabhudheva will soon begin working on Charlie Chaplin 2 that also stars Adah Sharma in the female lead role. Directed by Skathi Chidambaram, Charlie Chaplin 2 is a sequel to 2002 release Charlie Chaplin 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.
