Akkineni Nagarjuna’s cop drama Officer, directed by RGV, has wrapped up its shoot a few days ago. The film was initially confirmed to hit the screens in May.
But, the public backlash on RGV due to his complicity with controversial actress Sri Reddy in blatant character assassination on Pawan Kalyan has led to the speculations that the release of Officer will be pushed ahead.
There has also been a widespread clamour to ban RGV from Telugu film industry.
Amidst all this chaos, Nag is maintaining stoic silence over the film. Usually, Nag himself promotes all his movies. He regularly posts updates through his Twitter handle.
For Officer, he used to tweet about the progress every now and then. But, after the RGV – Sri Reddy issue, Nagarjuna completely stopped posting about Officer. He hasn’t announced about the release date, neither he posted about its postponement.
Even after completion of shoot, Nag didn’t post anything. Today, RGV announced the release of a new teaser from Officer. However, Nagarjuna didn’t react on it.
Speculations are doing rounds that Nag is distancing himself away from this RGV movie as it may impact his reputation badly.
He has already shelved Akhil’s film with RGV which was announced a couple of months ago.
So, we have to wait and see if Nag completely avoids promoting Officer or if he opens about it after some more days.
