The teaser of Super Star Mahesh Babu’s SPYder was unveiled by the makers today and in less than few hours of release, it has already clocked thousands of digital views. A hi-tech spider crawling across the tables and over Mahesh’s arm, the concept looks intriguing and visuals look stunning.

He has worked with top filmmakers like Mani Ratnam, Karan Johar and Priyadarshan among others. Known for bringing out the serene visuals, Santosh Sivan is working with A R Murugadoss for the second time in SPYder after Vijay’s Thuppakki.
