In 1989, Ram Gopal Varma and Nagarjuna redefined the very tenets of Indian cinema when their Shiva hit screens and grabbed plenty of eyeballs courtesy its gripping storyline and intense fight sequences. Nearly two decades after its release, Nags and RGV are working together on a film tiled officer. And, as expected, this has created a buzz amongst fans.
Not surprisingly, this has led to rumours about the film. Recently some Twitter handles handles reported that Officer had managed to do solid pre-release business before release and become a hit even before release. However, it seems that the rumours were false. Issuing a clarification, RGV asked fans to refrain from believing in any rumours.
“NAGRGV4” “Officer” are all false. We kindly request Media and few Tollywood Trade Twitter handles not to report these false reports without confirming with us. We are yet to complete our principal photography. Film will be releasing on 25 th of May,” he added.
In case you did not know, Officer is touted to be an action-drama and features Nags in the role of a cop. His look has already created a buzz amongst fans and could be a treat for the audience. The film also has newcomer Myra Sareen in a key role.
While announcing Officer, RGV had said that it would be different from anything he had 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.
