RGV is betting big on his upcoming action thriller, Officer, which has Nagarjuna playing the role of an investigative officer. Interestingly, the director has now revealed that the role is based on a real life cop named KS Prasanna, an IPS officer who is currently an ACP in Crime Branch, Mumbai.
Apparently, the inspiration behind ‘Officer’ is a story which Prasanna told RGV way back in 2010 when he was appointed to investigate a case involving another higher official from the police department. “The Story of @iamnagarjuna ‘s OFFICER is based upon a true life IPS officer K M Prasanna from Karnataka , who was appointed as the chief of a SIT (Special Investigation Team) to investigate a highly reputed cop in Mumbai. it’s the details that IPS officer K M Prasanna personally told me in 2010 that finally became the story of #Officer . @I amnagarjuna is playing Mr.Prasanna who at present is the Additional Commissioner of Police ,Crime Branch , Mumbai,” RGV posted on Twitter.
The director also revealed that Prasanna and Nagarjuna have a lot of similarities including their body language and strength of mind, and added that he has tried to capture all that in the film. ‘Officer’ is slated for release on June 1.
