Super Star Mahesh Babu is a busy man completing the shoot for his next with A.R.Murugadoss which is titled SPYder. The first look was revealed yesterday by the makers and the rest was history. With the word SPY in the title, analysis of critics and audience say that the story might revolve around a spy and his mission. Mahesh Babu himself had earlier told in an interview that the story would be similar to Thuppakki which had Ilayathalapathy Vijay in the lead role.
The Super Star, after releasing the first look of the film, gave an interview to Tamil weekly Vikatan and spoke about a lot of things at length. When asked about his Tamil debut Mahesh said, “I’ve grown up here for 25 years and studied at St Peters and Loyola colleges. Used to play loads of cricket here on these grounds. Tamil celebs like Surya, Karthi and Yuvan Shankar Raja are my schoolmates. Vijay is a good friend of mine.”
Mahesh’s production debut Srimanthudu was released in Tamil too but was a dubbed version. SPYder will be a bilingual film and a debut for Mahesh in Tamil. Speaking about this the actor said,” Actually my plan was to debut in Tamil after Telugu films. As dad is a big hero in Telugu, Tollywood became my priority. Later I thought of debuting here too, but things never materialised including that film with Mani Ratnam sir. Finally, Murugadoss impressed me with his script during Srimanthudu shoot, and now we’re here.”
SPYder, directed by A.R.Murugadoss, is scheduled to release on June 23rd, 2017 worldwide. It has Rakul Preet Singh playing the female lead and Tamil actor Bharath and S J Suryah playing roles with negative shades.
