A.R.Murugadoss in his speech at Spyder audio launch, “I saw Okkadu some ten years back in Vijayawada. I saw it in on the third weekend. It was a houseful show with many family audiences. I actually thought of remaking Ghajini in Telugu with Mahesh Babu. But it didn’t happen. Then after the success of Thuppaki, I wanted to remake Thuppakki in Telugu with Mahesh but that also didn’t materialize. That’s when I decided to do a direct Tamil film with him.”
While speaking, he was interrupted by the applause of large Mahesh Babu fans. That’s when he told; ” I’ve waited for two years to talk on this stage. Please stop shouting for a while and allow me to speak.”
After few seconds break, he continued, “No other hero would cooperate this much. Mahesh Babu sir is a big support to me. Spyder had night shoots for about 80 days. But not even a single day he showed faces. He wasn’t hesitant at all to shoot. I feel it is better to dub a film than making it as a bilingual. It was a tough and a challenging task. If Mahesh Babu weren’t there, we wouldn’t have completed this film. His dedication is phenomenal. Spyder will be a blockbuster. The success of the film belongs to Mahesh. Saying this in advance and dedicated to Mahesh. Mahesh will stun the audience in the interval episode of Spyder
The visuals of Santosh Sivan will speak for itself. I hope Peter Hein receives National Award for his work in this film. Spyder would become a huge success for just one single man, Mahesh Babu. Harris Jayaraj’s background score in the interval scene of the movie will become a sensational hit. Everyone will talk about it. SJ Suryah will be a terrific baddie villain in this film.”
Then, A.R.Murugadoss invited his whole AD team on stage. He then introduced his Assistant Director Mohan and announced that he is going to do his debut film with Vishal for Spyder’s producer NV Prasad.
Anchor Sathish asked two questions to Murugadoss that what tag would he give for Mahesh Babu like he gave’Thala’ to Actor Ajith. He replied, Mahesh Babu doesn’t like tags at all, and he doesn’t want all these tags. The second one was if at all he gets a chance to remake Rajini’s old film with Mahesh Babu what would it be? ARM answered Moondru Mugam.
In his speech, ARM likened Mahesh’s dedication to that of Aamir Khan, with whom the director did ‘Ghajini’. When the director described Mahesh as an Indian superstar, the actor said that he was happy to get the audiences’ love. ARM promised mind-blowing, stylish action in the film. He also announced that the much-awaited trailer of Spyder would be released on 15th of September. A.R.Murugadoss’s speech which had few breaking announcements was loved by every audience present at the venue.
