The highly anticipated first teaser of Mahesh Babu’s Spyder looks promising, hinting that audiences are in for a film packed with hi-tech wizardry. Apparently, the film will deal with bio terrorism, according to trusted sources from the film’s unit. In the first teaser, we see a hi-tech spider crawling up Mahesh Babu’s body and as it reaches his shoulder, he turns and shushes it.

Spyder, a spy-thriller being directed by AR Murugadoss, has been confirmed to hit the screens worldwide on September 30 to coincide with Dussehra. The makers are currently filming the high-octane action-based climax sequence in Chennai. In the film, Mahesh plays an intelligence bureau officer and he has apparently performed stunts sans body doubles. The film’s production designer Rupin Suchak had said, “This man has taken it to another league. There’s a particular sequence where even the stunt doubles were scared of doing it. But Mahesh just went ahead and delivered it,” he said.

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 Murugadoss and Mahesh Babu.
