Mahesh Babu’s Spyder, the spy thriller directed by AR Murugadoss, will hit the screens on September 27, according to trade tracker Ramesh Bala.

While the makers of Spyder had initially targetted June 23 to release the film, it had to be postponed because its shooting couldn’t be wrapped up in time. September is when another big film, Balakrishna’s Paisa Vasool, will also release.

Meanwhile, the makers of Spyder are planning on unveiling the second teaser of the film on a very special occasion. Reliable sources have confirmed that an action-packed one-minute teaser is most likely to be released on August 9, to coincide with Mahesh Babu’s birthday.

In the first teaser, which was unveiled on May 31, we saw a hi-tech spider crawling up Mahesh Babu’s body and as it reached his shoulder, he turned and shushed it.

Mahesh plays an intelligence bureau officer and he has apparently performed stunts sans body doubles. The film’s production designer Rupin Suchak had said that Mahesh didn’t hesitate to shoot a particular action sequence which even the stunt doubles were quite apprehensive about.

The film, which is being made on a budget of over Rs 100 crore, also stars Rakul Preet Singh and SJ Suryah in important roles. Harris Jayaraj has composed the music for the film. Spyder marks the first time collaboration of Murugadoss and Mahesh Babu. The film, according to reliable sources, will be based on bio-terrorism.
