The silent thriller Mercury, the first movie to release after the end of the historic strike, has been receiving mixed reviews from the critics.
However, the film seems to have thoroughly impressed Superstar Rajinikanth, who has praised the film to the skies.
Karthik Subbaraj took to Twitter to share the news with his fans. He said, “So happy!! Thalaivar watched #Mercury and loved it… He met the team , appreciated every aspect of the film and said it’s “Super Padam”…. Great to hear these words from #Superstar #Rajinikanth himself……. Thanks a lot Thalaivaaa…..(sic).”
Karthik will next direct Rajinikanth in a big-budget film, which will be produced by Sun Pictures. Anirudh Ravichander will compose the music for the film.
Karthik, in an interview, said that the film will go on floors soon and will be wrapped up by the end of 2018.
