The record hunt has just been started. Superstar Mahesh Babu is creating never heard records for a Telugu film other than Baahubali. Spyder Tamil Nadu deal has been closed. Lyca Productions, the production of 2.0 has bought the Tamil version and Tamil Nadu rights of the bilingual directed by AR Murugadoss for a record price. It’s 23 for only Tamil Nadu and 25 cr if we include overall Tamil version. It’s the second biggest deal for a dub film in Tamil, right after Baahubali. The power of AR Murugadoss brand in Tamil and the popularity of Mahesh Babu in Tamil Nadu has made this possible.
With this humongous deal, Spyder is now expected to obtain theatrical business around 130-140 cr with ease (including all languages). After the inclusion of satellite rights, the pre release business will stand around 170cr. That means, the producers would be into 60-70 cr table profit before the release. Isn’t this huge ?
Spyder is a spy thriller made in Telugu and Tamil languages simultaneously. This AR Murugadoss directorial has Rakul Preet playing the love Interest of Mahesh Babu and SJ Suryah playing the villain. The film is produced by NV Prasad in the presentation of Tagore Madhu. Spyder is set to release on 27 September worldwide in the distribution of Reliance Entertainment and Lyca Productions.
