The audio of Mahesh Babu's upcoming movie Spyder was launched at Kalaivanar Arangam in Chennai on Saturday, September 9. [Crawl down to listen to the songs]

The movie is being simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu. Hence, choosing Chennai for the launch did not come as a surprise as it helps the Telugu star to attract the Kollywood audience too.

The movie has five songs composed by Harris Jayaraj. Nikhita Gandhi, Haricharan, Sakthi Shree, Brijesh Tripati Sandilya, Hari, Jogi Sunitha, Pravin Saivi, Christopher Stanley and Sathya Prakash have lent their voices for the numbers.

The music director himself has sung one song. Madhan Karky have penned lyrics for all the tracks for the Tamil version, while Rama Jogayya Shastry have written the lines for the Telugu version.

Spyder is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions, which has already produced a blockbuster in the form of Kaththi and is currently bankrolling India's costliest movie 2.0 aka Enthiran 2. There was buzz that Rajinikanth would be the guest at the audio launch, but those reports remained rumours. 

As the title of the film indicates, the movie is a spy thriller and Mahesh Babu is playing an undercover agent. Rakul Preet Singh plays his love interest while SJ Suryah, Bharath and RJ Balaji are part of the ensemble cast.

Santosh Shivan wielded the camera while Sreekar Prasad has done the editing. Spyder will hit the screens on September 27.
