The entire Tamil film industry is keenly watching the proceedings as one of the biggest stars of Telugu cinema is making his debut there. The audio launch event of Mahesh Babu’s SPYder was held on Saturday night in a scintillating event attended by several big heads of Kollywood.
Speaking at the event, Raju Mahalingam of Lyca Productions, the noted production house which has grabbed the Tamil theatrical rights of SPYder, said that he became a huge fan of Mahesh after he had watched Pokiri a decade ago.
Recalling the words said by South superstar Rajinikanth, Mahalingam said, ‘Rajini sir once told me that Mahesh Babu looks very bubbly and charismatic’.
That’s a huge compliment from a superstar to another.
During his speech at the event, senior Tamil filmmaker Kalaipuli S Thanu, who has bankrolled many biggies including Rajini’s ‘Kabali’, said that Mahesh would give tough competition to the Top 4 heroes of Tamil cinema after the release of SPYder.
