Nagarjuna has teamed up with Ram Gopal Varma after a long gap of 24 years for a crime thriller film. This is the duo's fourth project together after Shiva, Antham and Govinda Govinda. Nagarjuna essays the role of a hot-headed cop.
The film has created a lot of buzz among the Telugu audience ever since its announcement. Officer is the film's title. RGV took to Twitter to announce the film's title and also released the First Look Motion Poster.

The film's title comes with a tagline "Cops were never this scary". RGV has said that Alfred Hitchcock was the inspiration behind the tagline.
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— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) February 27, 2018
