Nikilesh Surya says it is the darkest ever day for Tamil Cinema

As we all know, Karthik Subbaraj's Mercury released yesterday all over the world, except in Tamil Nadu, due to the ongoing Tamil cinema strike. But the sad part is, pirated prints of Mercury is available online already.

Nikilesh Surya of Rohini Silverscreen considers today (April 14 - Tamil New Year) as the darkest day ever for Tamil cinema. His latest tweet reads as follows. "Our stand that piracy stems from movies being released abroad stays vindicated as #Mercury without being released in a single TN theatre is out on Tamil rockers here on the very same day!

Darkest ever day for Tamil Cinema as the highest attendance is for a Malayalam movie in cinema halls today. Hope sanity prevails and normalcy restored soon 🙏"

Karthik Subbaraj apologizes to Tamil audience for not releasing Mercury

Karthik Subbaraj's silent thriller Mercury has released today (April 13), all over the world, except in Tamil Nadu, due to the ongoing Tamil cinema strike. This Prabhu Deva starrer is expected to release in Tamil Nadu, once the strike is called off.
 

At this juncture, Karthik has officially issued a statement, apologizing to the Tamil audience, for not being able to release the film here. He also requested people to wait patiently for a few more days, instead of opting for privacy.


Karthik Subbaraj's statement read, "Mercury is releasing BIG worldwide today in more than 1000 screens except Tamil Nadu, my home... Am glad to reach out my film to such a wider audience and overwhelmed with the response so far... While this is definitely a moment to cherish in my life, It's also really really disheartening for us to not show the film to my home audience who made me what am I today.


Since we were not able to push the release date outside Tamil Nadu, as it will be a big blow to the business. Since we were not allowed to release even the Hindi version here in Tamil Nadu.
 

Since we support this strike to show solidarity to hopes of thousands of FEFSI workers who are still waiting without work for more than a month, for strike to get over, and good things to happen. We are not able to show the film to my home audience.


Me and my team, with so much of pain and helplessness, are waiting to show the film to you soon in theatres. Request you all to please wait until it get released in theatres and please please avoid piracy.


Heartfelt sincere apologies and request. To my dearest Tamil audience.


Karthik Subbaraj"

Apart from Prabhu Deva, the film also features Indhuja, Sananth Reddy, Deepak Paramesh, and others, in its cast.
