Noted filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma—who is quite active on the social media—just took to Twitter and shared a priceless throwback pic with fans. In it, he can be seen alongside Nagarjuna during the script narration session of Shiva. While sharing the pic, RGV wrote that Nags was ‘checking him out’ and deciding whether to give him a break.
“A pic of @iamnagarjuna checking me out 28 years back to decide whether to give me a break or not .This is just after I narrated the script of SHIVA to him,’ he captioned it.
In case you did not know, Shiva was the first directorial venture of RGV’s career and turned out to be a success. It is regarded as a trendsetter courtesy its intense plot and gripping action scenes. In it, Nags was seen alongside Amala Akkineni and delivered a solid performance. Shiva was later remade in Hindi with the same cast and the remake too did well at the box office.
At present, RGV and Nagarjuna are working on their latest film together Officer. It is a hard-hitting drama and features the veteran actor in the role of a cop. The film also has newcomer Myra Sareen in a key role.
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
