There can be no denying that 2017 was a pretty good year for veteran actor Nagarjuna. In October, his son Naga Chaitanya got married to Samantha Akkineni and added a new dimension to his life. A few days later, he received more good news when Raju Gari Gadhi 2 opened to a good response at the box office and earned praise from fans. In the horror-comedy, he starred alongside Sam and delivered a solid performance. Prior to its release, he had praised its director and said that he is a perfectionist.
“I am playing a mentalist in this horror comedy and it’s not a sequel to Raju Gari Gadhi. Both are different stories, but of the same genre, hence, they kept the same title. He (Ohmkar) is a perfectionist and looks into every small detail,” he had told a leading daily.
With 2017 in the rear-view, Nags is currently gearing up for the release of Officer. The film is an action-drama and is being directed by RGV. In it, the veteran will be seen playing the role of a cop and sporting a new look. Now, there is interesting news about the film. According to the latest report, Officer may be loosely based on the action-entertainer Taken which had Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace in the lead. Well, it will be worth watching if this turns out to be true.
Interestingly, while announcing the film, RGV had said that this will be petty different from anything he has done in the past.
“I am extremely excited that I am doing a film with Nagarjuna after nearly 25 years but contrary to some uninformed media speculations, this new film is nothing to do with ‘Shiva’, neither in character nor in story content. It’s a very different but an extremely realistic action film set against a story such as neither me nor Nagarjuna has ever done before,” he had written on FB.
So, are you looking forward to Officer? Comments, please!
