Director AR Murugadoss sounded super confident at the audio launch of Spyder. “I’ve huge respect for you but it took nearly two years to speak on this stage so please give respect to my art”, the director was trying to control fans of Mahesh Babu, who went berserk chanting "Mahesh Babu mantra" and creating chaos.
“Spyder will be a huge blockbuster and I attribute the success to Mahesh Babu. Making a bilingual was a Herculean task, we even filmed the silent shots and expressions twice to bring out the authenticity”, the director adding that Mahesh’s dedication was unbelievable.
“When I worked with Aamir Khan in Ghajini, he asked if I’m not satisfied with the output, he can give extra days for the re-shoot. Similarly, Mahesh Babu was ready to give ten more days for Spyder. His dedication level is amazing”, said Murugadoss, who revealed, “Many don’t know about the humor sense of Mahesh Babu, I’ve laughed continuously for two hours because of him”.
Talking about the action sequences in Spyder, Murugadoss said “You will witness the grandeur and quality of the action sequences in the trailer, which will be out on September 15. We have filmed an action sequence with more than 2000 people, thanks to stunt master Peter Hein for his innovative techniques”.
“Spyder will be an edge of the seat action thriller with great background score, catchy songs, and stunning visuals”, said Mahesh Babu, who impressed Kollywood audiences with his Tamil fluency. “When I watched Thupakki, felt I should do a film like that in my career glad that Spyder has happened now”, added Mahesh, who mentioned that ‘I’m waiting is his memorable dialogue in Vijay’s films.
The film’s composer Harris Jayaraj also reiterated that Spyder will be a great success. “Audiences will have a blast watching Spyder in theaters. When I saw Thuppakki, told everyone that it will be an important film in Tamil cinema. Similarly, Spyder will attract people. Fans will minimum watch the film for ten times in theaters”, said Harris.
Tamil Films Producer Council Vishal promised Mahesh Babu’s fans by saying “We will take care of our Mahesh Babu but I will watch Spyder only in Andhra with fans because the first-day-first-show of his films is an experience”, said Vishal.
The film’s villain SJ Suryah lauded Mahesh Babu for being humble. “I know Mahesh Babu for eleven years. He remains the same, his humbleness is the main reason behind his super stardom. I should thank Murugadoss for giving me this opportunity. With Spyder, people from Telugu and Hindi will also recognize me as an actor”, said SJ Suryah.
The film’s heroine Rakul Preet Singh thanked Mahesh Babu, AR Murugadoss for the opportunity. She also stunned the audiences by an impromptu jig with a fan on the stage.
