After there was a slight change in the release date of Akkineni Nagarjuna starrer Officer, the cop thriller is now gearing up to hit screens on June 1st, 2018. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Officer will have Akkineni Nagarjuna playing a ruthless cop and is set in the backdrop of mafia. Officer was initially slated to be released on May 25th, 2018 but had to be pushed ahead after there was a delay in the post-production works of the film. The makers will also hold a pre-release event on May 28th, 2018, Monday, in Hyderabad which will be attended by the complete cast and crew of the film. Reports reveal that Ram Gopal Varma has invited Rangasthalam director Sukumar to the event and the filmmaker may grace the occasion. The pre-release event will take place at a plush convention centre in Hyderabad.

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.
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.
