Prabhu Deva and 'Mercury' Director Karthik Subbaraj

It’s a huge disappointment for Prabhu Deva fans as the much anticipated movie Mercury may not hit the Tamil Nadu theatres as scheduled. The movie directed by Karthik Subbaraj is a silent thriller. Karthik took to his twitter account to explain his reason of supporting the strike. He tweeted, “To clarify certain confusions # Mercury team including me, the director, all the cast, crew and producers have been honestly supporting the TNFPC strike going on and we have already decided to not release the Tamil version of our film in Tamil Nadu until the strike is over. We too like thousands of film industry workers are hoping for a fruitful solution to all our problems.”

The young director who is all set to collaborate with Superstar Rajinikanth for his untitled next added that the trailer of Mercury has also been postponed. “With utmost respect to the protests and bandh, we are postponing the Trailer release of # Mercury that was supposed to happen today. However this film being a Silent film and having a huge release globally on 13th April. And cinema being bread winning profession for hundreds of our team members who has put in their sweat and blood into this film, we are in a situation to move on towards the release of the film. Hence the trailer will be released in a day or two. Looking for all your support as always,” he posted on social media.

The movie’s trailer was supposed to release today but has now been postponed by the makers due to protests that are happening in Tamil Nadu mainly over Cauvery and Sterlite. Many of the film releases were postponed owing to the month long strike between the Tamil Film Producers Council and the Digital Service Providers.

 

The other star cast of Mercury includes Sananth Reddy, Deepak Paramesh, Shashank Purushothaman and Remya Nambeesan.

Mercury will have its world premiere at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angles (IFFLA) on April 12, and is slated to release in India on April 13, 2018
