Actor Dhanush released the teaser of Mercury today on Twitter and wrote – “Very happy to release the teaser of Karthik Subbaraj’s #Mercury – A Silent Thriller starring ace dancer-actor-director Prabhudeva. A Silent Film after so many years! Congratulations to the whole team.”
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.”
Mercury is being produced by Kaarhekeyan Santhanam and Jayantilal Gada jointly while the music is being composed by Santosh Narayanan. Bollywood composer Mithoon will be composing one of the tracks as a guest composer for Mercury. The camera is being cranked by S.Thirunavukkarasu. Mercury is slated to be released on April 13th, 2018, confirmed the teaser.

It is being speculated that the film will have less dialogues and will be a thriller with Prabhudheva playing the scary antagonist.
