The highly anticipated first teaser of Mahesh Babu’s Spyder has clocked 5 million views in just 24 hours, registering a new record among Telugu releases. 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. The film, according to reliable sources, will be based on bio-terrorism. In a tweet, Mahesh Babu thanked his fans for the overwhelming response to the teaser.

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.

The film will feature a hi-tech spider.
