When you make a film with a big star, fans always put pressure on the makers for various things and the same is happening with Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Spyder. Mahesh fans have been continuously asking for Spyder’s Hindi version since the movie went on floors. After initially announcing that they would release Spyder in Hindi, the makers backed out as they felt that it was not viable for them.
Few days ago, makers officially confirmed that the film will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam versions only. This statement made fans angry and they sent messages to the producers, demanding to know why they were not releasing the film in Hindi.
A source close to the production house told, “A lot of publicity is necessary for a proper release, and eventual good openings. If they release the film without any of that hype, the audience will treat it like a dubbed film and the collections will be very low that will not be even counted, which is not good for an popular actor like Mahesh Babu. Instead, it’s better to drop the idea and sell the satellite rights.”
“People compare every film with Baahubali and that is also another fear factor” added the source.
Somehow, they have made a right decision because massive promotions are required to get buzz in the Hindi market and that is not everyone’s cup of tea. Recently released Tamil film VIP 2 Hindi version turned out to be a huge disaster in North. Even though, VIP 2 had popular faces like Kajol and Dhanush in the lead, the movie could not even collect one crore from it’s Hindi version.
Well, now Mahesh Hindi belt fans will have to wait for more 6 months for Spyder Hindi version. Reportedly, Spyder Hindi dub version satellite rights have been sold out to Zee Network for a record price.
Directed by AR Murugadoss and produced by NV Prasad and Tagore Madhu jointly, Spyder stars Mahesh Babu and Rakul Preet in the lead roles while SJ Suryah is playing the main antagonist in the movie. Spyder is slated to hit screens on Sep 27th.
