Prabhu Deva started this year with the Tamil comedy film Charlie Chaplin 2, a sequel to the 2002 movie Charlie Chaplin. His recent release, Devi 2, also happens to be a sequel. Asked about the challenges of working on a sequel, Prabhu Deva says, “Challenges are there, but you have to put in hard work. People expect more. We try to give more. So, there is hard work.”

Going by the trend, a lot of Hindi filmmakers remake south Indian movies. “Everywhere people are talented…both ways, goods things are happening. Also, it is not a new trend. Tamil films are also made from Hindi. It’s just that now because of social media, YouTube…so many people are getting to know about it,” said the Kadhalan actor.

Whether it is region or genre, the artiste likes to experiment. His next film Khamoshi is ready to hit the screens on June 14 in Hindi. “Khamoshi is a thriller. It’s the first time I am doing a thriller, so I am excited. It is something new for me. Let’s see how people react to it,” said the multi-talented artiste, whose forte lies in dance and action movies.

Going by its trailer, the film, helmed by Chakri Toleti, looks like a remake of the 2016 Hollywood slasher film Hush. “I don’t know how much of a serial killer (role it is). But no, the makers didn’t say that it is a remake of a film. I haven’t seen the film,” said Prabhu Deva.
