Akkineni Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma will be teaming up after ages for a cop story titled Officer which is slated to be released on June 1st, 2018. The makers had released couple of teasers of Officer which has kept fans eagerly waiting for the release. Ram Gopal Varma revealed that the character played by Nagarjuna is loosely based on a real life cop KM Prasanna who is currently serving in Mumbai. KM Prasanna is from Karnataka and was recruited in the SIT for a special case, revealed Ram Gopal Varma. “The Story of @iamnagarjuna ‘s OFFICER is based upon a true life IPS officer K M Prasanna from Karnataka , who was appointed as the chief of a SIT (Special Investigation Team) to investigate a highly reputed cop in Mumbai,” tweeted RGV.

RGV also said that Prasanna revealed a lot of things to the director which helped him form the character of Nagarjuna. “It’s the details that IPS officer K M Prasanna personally told me in 2010 that finally became the story of #Officer . @I amnagarjuna is playing Mr.Prasanna who at present is the Additional Commissioner of Police ,Crime Branch , Mumbai” Varma wrote further on his Twitter handle.

Officer also stars Myra Sareen in other lead role and will mark her debut in acting and Tollywood. Although the teaser has raised the expectations on the film, the visuals in it only reveals that the film will be a trademark RGV style narration to it and nothing new in it. But one can expect the story to be unique since Nagarjuna would be playing a cop and the central character. Officer is being produced by Ram Gopal Varma himself under the banner RGV Factory jointly with Sudheer Chandra. Nag and RGV are teaming up after almost three decades and this has created huge excitement around the film.
