According to Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araneus_di...,

It is an orb-weaver spider found in Europe and North America. Since you spotted it in Chennai, this is likely some other species. I am no spider-expert but suggest you check Neoscona sp. The pattern on the back is reminding me of it. Good luck. This is a wonderful photo, so ID should not be difficult.
