Filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj has completed just 4 films and yet his directorial skills have been scaling to a greater extent. The filmmaker is now curiously awaiting the release of his silent thriller ‘Mercury’, which has Prabhu Deva in lead role. The movie was initially supposed to hit screens on April 13 for the festive occasion of Tamil New Year Day.
Now it looks like the movie might be postponed due to the ongoing strike in Kollywood. Apparently, the director will start working on his new film with Rajinikanth from the month of August. It will be a political thriller, which has musical score by Anirudh. It is not yet confirmed whether Trisha or Nayanthara will be performing the female lead roles. On the other hand, it is mentioned by close sources that Sun Pictures is planning to release the movie for April 14, 2019 for the occasion of Tamil New Year Day. Meanwhile, there are couple of movies – 2.0 and Kaala from Rajinikanth scheduled for release in 2018
