Nagarjuna to portray ex-RAW agent in Praveen Sattaru's Telugu action drama, director confirms

Nagarjuna will portray the role of an ex -RAW agent, who turns into a Chief Security Officer (CSO) while on a mission, filmmaker Praveen Sattaru has confirmed.

In an interaction with Deccan Chronicle, Sattaru speaks about working with the superstar on the movie, which commenced shooting on Monday.

Sattaru describes the actor as a "stunner" and says he'll perform high-octane stunts in the film, billed as an action-entertainer. He adds that the action sequences are comparable to Hollywood flicks. He also applauded Nagarjuna efforts and called it "truly inspiring."

“In Tollywood, we have tried to adopt scripts and narrative styles from Hollywood, but we have seldom succeeded. I believe the trick lies in identifying and adapting the narrative style of our films to the Hollywood style of film-making,” the director says.

The filmmaker, who has Garuda Vega under his belt, believes Nagarjuna gave his nod to the role because of how he envisioned the character. "The intense emotional arc his character undergoes caught his attention," he says, adding the actor also thought the script was "gripping."
