Working experience with AR Murugadoss:

n

I was totally excited while working with Murugadoss.  I have been  looking forward to working with him since a long time and finally I got the opportunity to team up with him. For me, Murugadoss is a pan-Indian director so it’s a dream comes true. I am very happy to debut in  Kollywood with this  project. I must say that 'SPYder' offers the audience a very new experience.

About working in two languages at the same time:

n

SPYder is a bilingual movie.  I know Telugu and Tamil fluently. Initially i thought that doing one take each for both language would be very easy but after the shoot of three days, I realized that It was very tough task. Every scene was shot twice in two languages-Telugu and Tamil. We ended up making two movies. A few of the actors are different in Telugu and Tamil version.  It was like remaking a movie parallelly on the same day. Each of  two versions-Telugu and Tamil, took equal time. I give credit to the director for making sure that energy levels were high throughout.

n

The teaser showcased a SPYder. Will it be present throughout the film?

n

 It’s just a concept based teaser that we released. The robotic spyder was created just for that glimpse to introduce hero’s character. I don’t want audiences to get confused. There will not be a robotic spider in the film.

n

 

n

The major highlights of the film:

n

The audience can see Hollywood-like action episodes along with intense human emotions in SPYder.  The film has  the right mix of commercial elements with a strong undercurrent social message. There are lots of exciting highlights  and Murugadoss wants audiences to enjoy  the whole thing in theater.

n

 

n

About hero character:

n

He works as a spy in an intelligence Bureau.

n

 

n

Working with SJ Surya:

n

Villain character plays very important role in Spyder.  Spyder is a faceoff between protagonist and  antagonist. There is an invisible villain in the film.  SJ Suryah performs brilliantly as an actor. I don’t think anybody else would have played villain character as good as SJ Surya in Spyder.   There are no combination scenes in good number between me and SJ Suryah.

n

Working with Rakul:

n

As I am fluent in both Telugu and Tamil, so  it was a bit easy for me but in the case of Rakul Preet, she is not fluent in Tamil but she worked hard to deliver Tamil dialogues. Her professionalism helped us wrap up the film faster.

n

 

n

About Bharath's role:

n

Bharath is not playing a cameo but a very important role. He accepted to do  Spyder out of his  respect for Murugadoss.

n

 

n

About music by Harris Jayaraj:
All the songs are getting  positive feedback from the music lovers. Coming to background score, he stunned everyone with his fantastic work. Hat off to him.

n

 

n

Working with cinematographer Santosh Sivan:
I dreamt of working with him. I have tried to work with him many times in the past but he chooses his work.  When we announced Spyder, Santosh Sivan himself called and said that he would do the film.

n

 

n

Will this bilingual film satisfy both Telugu and Tamil audience?

n

As Spyder has a universal subject, I am confident that the film will be well received by the audiences of both the languages. We shot with different artistes for both the versions- Telugu and Tamil.

n

 

n

There is a difference of 43 seconds between Tamil and Telugu version runtime?
Yes, due to the logo animation of Lyca for Tamil version. The run-time of 2:23 hours is very important for a racy action thriller like Spyder.

n

 

n

About advance booking in India and USA:
I am confident about my product.  I am waiting for the morning show crowds to say ‘super hit’.  This is my biggest release in my career. There is a huge potential for Spyder as it’s the first real bilingual from a Telugu star.  We are also releasing in Arabic and Malayalam.

n

 

n

About Next film's release:

n

Koratala Siva's 'Bharath Ane Nenu' is progressing.  Producer Danayya will announce  the release date  after 30 days after the release of SPYder.

n

 

n

About  Rajamouli film:

n

As for SS Rajamouli's film, i have to complete my present commitments before working with him.
