When asked if directing Rajinikanth is a huge responsibility given the fan following he commands down South, the director said, “Right from my childhood, I am Rajinikanth fan. I have grown up watching his entertainers and he is the reason for me to fantasize cinema. I don’t take this as a pressure, but I need to deliver a good film. It is a big challenge for me.”
Karthik Subbaraj is currently gearing up for the release of Mercury, starring Prabhu Deva in lead. The film is a silent thriller and the director believes that the film is extremely commercial.
When asked if it is difficult to direct a silent film in today’s time, the director said, “Rather than tough, I would call it challenging to direct a silent film in today’s time. For me, cinema has always been a visual medium, wherein the visuals should convey the message. I always wanted to make a silent film, but never had a concept that would fit into this narrative, but later I got this subject which I felt that this could be done without dialogues. So that’s how Mercury happen. This is a thriller that it engages you till the end. This isn’t an experimental film, and it is totally commercial.”
