This Dussehra is going to be exciting in Tollywood as two of the most anticipated films -- Balakrishna’s Paisa Vasool and Mahesh Babu’s Spyder -- are set to battle it out at the box-office. Both the films are targeting September 29 release and it’s going to be one epic fight at the ticket window. While Spyder was originally slated for June 23 release, it had to be postponed because its shooting couldn’t be wrapped up in time. According to reliable sources, there is still another 10 days of shooting left in Spyder, and this includes two songs that have to be shot.

Puri Jagannadh’s Paisa Vasool, on the other hand, is progressing at brisk pace. Marking the first time collaboration of Puri and Balakrishna, the film is tipped to be a high-octane action entertainer. Balakrishna will be seen in a full-length commercial avatar and if the posters are to go by, we wouldn’t be disappointed. Last seen as a warrior in Gauthamiputra Satakarni, it will be a welcome change for Balakrishna and his fans in Paisa Vasool, which also stars Shriya Saran. The makers are currently shooting in Portugal and are expected to return to India later this month.

In Spyder, Mahesh plays an intelligence bureau officer and he has apparently performed stunts sans body doubles. 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 is composing the music. Spyder marks the first time collaboration of director AR Murugadoss and Mahesh Babu.
