Craze for superstars and their films know no boundaries in southern part of India. If ‘Baahubali 2’ fetched the ‘highest-grossing film ever’ (the magnum opus has made 1,500 crore and counting) title, Mahesh Babu’s ‘SPYder’ teaser has set a new record of being ‘the most viewed teaser’ on YouTube, with more than 5 million views in a day.
In the recent past, SS Rajamouli's 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' was the only Indian film to have pulled off a similar stint.
On the day the trailer of the film released, it was viewed more than 65 million times within 24 hours. It went on to become the '7th most viewed video online'.
High on technological usage like VFX and some enchanting graphics, the teaser is only one minute long and sees the superstar in the role of an intelligence officer combating ill practices within his organization.
Modern technology and visually exciting graphics will play a key role in the film as the theme of this sci-fi flick is bio-terrorism. In fact, the man behind the amazing VFX work in ‘Baahubali’ franchise, RC Kamalakannan, has been roped in for ‘SPYder’ and is currently in Russia, working on this project in a studio.
Besides technology, the film also has high-octane action sequences that are being shot in Chennai at this moment.
Slated for a Dussehra release, on September 30, the film also stars Rakul Preet, SJ Suryah and Bharath Niwas in crucial roles.
