CHENNAI — The first teaser of superstar Mahesh Babu’s upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual, “Spyder,” a thriller based on bio-terrorism, was unveiled June 1 and in no time, it took the internet by storm, clocking over five million views in 24 hours.

The one-minute and 15-second-long teaser, which features a hi-tech spider, hints that the film could be high on technical wizardry.
