Hit filmmaker AR Murugadoss on Monday turned a year older. Celebrities and fans have been flooding his Twitter page with birthday wishes even as he revealed that he is eagerly awaiting the release of his most-awaited film Spyder, which has Tollywood star Mahesh Babu in the lead role.

He has given hits in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. He made his directorial debut in 2001 with the blockbuster Dheena, which had Thala Ajith in the lead role. In a career spanning about 17 years, he has directed 11 films, including Spyder, so far.

The 43-year-old director has spent more than one year shooting for this upcoming thriller that is said to be his most ambitious project yet. The film is also special because it marks Mahesh’s official debut in Tamil. The Telugu-Tamil film has been made on a whopping budget of Rs 120 crore.

Talking about the film on Sunday at a press meet in Chennai, Murugadoss said he was feeling nervous and confident so close to the film’s release. The director added 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.
