Just love the circle of life @iamnagarjuna produced my debut #Shiva and now after some 25 years I produced Nagarjuna's #Officer and now in a full circle Nagarjuna is producing @AkhilAkkineni8 's film with me as director— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 27, 2018
Hey @iamnagarjuna I want to be honest,even if u will beat me with a cycle chain. I really think @AkhilAkkineni8 has a better voice, better style,better demeanour and many other few things better than what u had when u were doing #Shiva— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 27, 2018
Hey @iamnagarjuna ,inspite of all the positives I am hoping to take care of @AkhilAkkineni8 's few deficiencies as a director and much more than that I am really hoping that u will take care of my directorial deficiencies as a producer the way u so took care of them in #Shiva— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 27, 2018
In Officer, Nagarjuna plays a cop. The first look of the film was unveiled a month ago.
The film marks Nagarjuna Akkineni and Ram Gopal Varma's fourth collaboration, they have previously worked together in Antham, Govinda Govinda and Drohi.
Of collaborating with Ram Gopal Varma yet again, Nagarjuna earlier told news agency IANS, "Well, going by his recent works, I shouldn't have. In fact, when he first came to me three months ago, I very clearly and explicitly told him to go back and work on the script and come back later, and not do two other films while waiting for my consent. Rather he should put all his other projects and ideas and away and just focus on my film. That was my condition for agreeing to do his film."
Officer is expected to hit the screens this May.
