Bollywoodlife met up with the Mercury team - Prabhudheva and Karthik Subbaraj to talk about their upcoming silent thriller. Apart from discussing the first silent movie in thirty years, we also got a chance to play the rapid fire with them. With so many south films getting a Hindi makeover, we had to ask them who would they liked to see in the remake of these South films. When it came to Arjun Reddy, they voted Shahid Kapoor. For Vikram Vedha, they chose Shah Rukh Khan for Vedha's role. When we asked them who would they liked to see if the Malayalam cult movie - Premam is remade. Guess who they had in mind? He is an actor who is making waves ever since his debut in 2012. With each performance, he cranks it up a notch and is one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood today. Yes, they mentioned Varun Dhawan! We couldn't have agreed more! The actor is versatility personified. Give him an intense role or a comic one or a loavlable character - he will pull all of them off with ease and finesse.
