AR Murugadoss directorial ‘Spyder’ has received superstar Rajinikanth’s coveted stamp of approval. In a tweet, trade analyst Ramesh Bala posted Rajinikanth’s views on the film. “Film is very good. Film has good message along with superb action part. Murugadoss handled the subject very well. Mahesh babu gave an extra ordinary performance. I congratulate entire team of ‘Spyder’ for delivery such a superb film,” read Rajinikanth’s statement.
‘Spyder’ is a Tamil-Telugu bilingual spy thriller, which stars Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu in the role of an Intelligence Bureau officer. The project marks Murugadoss’s first collaboration with Mahesh Babu. This film is also Mahesh’s debut in the Tamil industry. ‘Spyder’ also stars Rakul Preet Singh, SJ Suryah and Bharath.
The music is composed by Harris Jayaraj, who returns to Telugu cinema after seven years. In a press conference, AR Murugadoss had expressed nervousness regarding the film. The director had admitted that he could hear his own heartbeat. “I have worked to my best for this movie. Every director wants to give something new and I started with the same motion and I believe I have managed to do it,” he said.

Murugadoss had also said that it was physically taxing for the whole crew to shoot a film simultaneously in two languages. “In the beginning, the idea of a bilingual got us very excited. It was only after we started shooting, did we realize how challenging it was. Each scene and even the songs had to be shot twice. It was physically taxing, especially when most of the shooting happened at night,” he had said in an IANS interview.
AR Murugadoss must be flushing with pride after the legend Rajinikanth himself has come out praising ‘Spyder’.
