Prabhudeva’s career has taken a new swing after he signed up for several films in the past two years.
After starting as a dancer in his early days and progressing to acting and then stepping into direction, Prabhudeva has tasted massive success in every sphere he has ventured into.
He will next be seen in Karthik Subbaraj’s horror thriller, Mercury, hitting screens across the country on Friday with the exception of its Tamil version in Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, Prabhudeva’s name is now being attached to the sequel of Ulle Veliye under Parthiepan’s direction along with Samuthirakani in a vital role.
As of now, it is unclear whether Prabhudeva has indeed been cast in Ulle Veliye 2, but other popular names like Mamta Mohandas, 'Aadukalam' Kishore, Robo Shankar and MS Baskar will reportedly be seen in important supporting roles.
It must be noted Prabhudeva and Parthiepan previously collaborated in films namely James Bandu and Suyamvaram, in which they had starring roles.
On the other hand, Prabhudeva is currently attached to several films starting with the comedy-drama, Yung Mung Sung, where he will be seen as a Kung Fu master along with Lakshmi Menon as a Bharatanatyam dancer, Thangar Bachan as his father and RJ Balaji in a supporting role.
The actor turned director is also part of Lakshmi, a dance musical, along with Aishwarya Rajesh as the female lead.
He will also be seen in Charlie Chaplin 2 alongside Nikki Galrani and Adah Sharma as the female leads and veteran actor Prabhu reprising his role from the 2002 film, Charlie Chaplin.
The Gulaebaghavali star is also the antagonist in Khamoshi, the Hindi remake of Nayanthara’s upcoming Tamil horror film, Kolaiyuthir Kaalam; both films being directed by Chakri Toleti.
Prabhudeva will once again wear the director’s hat presumably sometime towards the end of the year when he will helm Dabangg 3 starring Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan.
Parthiepan too is expected to wrap up his remaining portions in Gautham Menon’s action spy thriller, Dhruva Natchathiram, starring 'Chiyaan' Vikram in the lead role.
