All eyes were on Akkineni Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma collaboration Officer which released on June 1st, 2018 worldwide. Said to be a cop story, Officer has Nagarjuna playing the titular role while newcomer Myra Sareen will be seen in a pivotal role. The film opened to high expectations from audiences since Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma are collaborating after almost three decades. However, the film failed to impress the audience and tanked at the box office. The collections of Officer look disastrous and the film has turned out to be one of the biggest flops ever. However, Nagarjuna seems to have taken the failure in hi stride and has moved on in life.
Hinting that the film, Officer, tanked at BO, Nagarjuna took to social media and posted a message which read – “Good morning!!it is Monday again and another week is over. These words by Winston Churchill come to my mind “SUCCESS IS NOT FINAL,FAILURE IS NOT FATAL: IT IS THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE THAT COUNTS.” i smile and I move on. Have a great day!!!” This may have been hinted that Officer is flop which was also shared by RGV stating Amen. Although this seems to be a sign from Nag to move on after the failure, Officer seems to be still haunting them.
According to reports in a popular leading daily, a distributor of Officer, Subramanyam, has said that he would end his life after the film brought him huge losses. All these seem to be adding up to the failure of the film and makes Nag and RGV worried men.
Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma have collaborated for many movies like Shiva, Antham and Govinda Govinda which received a lot of critical acclaim. The duo is back now after almost two decades for a film titled Officer which will have Akkineni Nagarjuna playing a fierce cop. Expectations on Officer are quite high because of the successful combination of Akkineni Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma.
