Officer first look: Ram Gopal Varma unveils motion poster for upcoming Nagarjuna-starrer
Ram Gopal Varma has released the first look and teaser of his upcoming film Officer, starring Nagarjuna in the leading role. The movie sees the Telugu superstar take on the role of a cop. According to the filmmaker, the tagline of the film, "Cops were never this scary," is inspired from a quote by Alfred Hitchcock.
Alfred Hitchcock used to say he gets scared of cops even though he’s never done any crime ..The tag line of @iamnagarjuna ‘s #Officer is inspired from that line of his

In the motion poster, Nagarjuna comes across as the quintessential, proud police officer on a mission. With an objective to end corruption and bring down the bad guys, he zooms across the frame brandishing a gun and pulls the trigger multiple times. There is no official word on the rest of the cast yet.
The actor-director duo have previously collaborated on several movies such as Great Robbery, Govindhaa … Govindhaa…, Drohi, Antham, Shiva and Siva. Varma says Officer is his most ambitious project with the actor so far.
Varma and Nagarjuna had postponed the title announcement as they were grief-stricken over Sridevi's demise.
Officer is co-produced by Varma and Sudheer Chandra.
