The teaser of the Tamil-Telugu bilingual SPYder, starring Mahesh Babu, was released on June 1. The one-minute-long video has already created a record for the highest ever views on day one for the teaser of a South Indian movie, having clocked around 6.3 million views on YouTube within 24 hours of its release.

This is the first time that Mahesh Babu is playing a spy, but for director AR Murugadoss, this genre is familiar territory, having already made Thuppakki. SPYder is said to be the story of an intelligence officer who resists his agency’s unlawful practices. The teaser indicates that Mahesh Babu’s character might use high-end technology.

The film also reportedly has adrenaline-pumping action sequences that are being shot in Chennai. Considering that the film will feature extensive portrayal of advanced technology, it will also rely on the use of detailed visual effects. Baahubali VFX supervisor, RC Kamalakannan, who has been signed for the film, has already begun work on the visuals at a Russian studio.

SPYder, bankrolled by NV Prasad and Tagore Madhu, also stars Bharath, Rakul Preet and SJ Suryah. The film, which marks Mahesh Babu’s Tamil debut, is tentatively set to release on September 30.
