DNA reports that Murugadoss has confirmed that the makers are considering a Hindi remake as well and will announce the details after 10 days.

The same report quotes the filmmaker as saying, "Mahesh Babu’s home audience expects a certain kind of heroism from him. In Spyder, he is not larger-than-life. So, it’s taking his fans in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana longer to accept him in as an understated, low-key heroism. Whereas in Tamil Nadu, the audience is more accepting of his scaled-down heroism.”

Thus, Murugadoss has hinted that the Bollywood moviegoers may warm up to Babu's toned down heroism too as that is the degree of heroism that is more popular in the industry today.

Also, Bollywood Life reports that the Hindi remake of Spyder will star Babu himself and may turn out to be his long awaited Bollywood debut. Several of his past films have been remade in Hindi, most famously Puri Jagannadh's 2006 action drama Pokiri which was remade as Prabhu Deva's 2008 action drama Wanted. But in Spyder, unlike Wanted, not Salman Khan but Mahesh Babu will play the lead role himself.

Spyder also stars Rakul Preet Singh and SJ Suryah. It is produced by NV Prasad's NVR Cinema.
