Speaking about collaborating with Nagarjuna after working together on the hit film Shiva in 1990, RGV shared, “I am extremely excited that I am doing a film with Nagarjuna after nearly 25 years.”

Ram Gopal Varma revealed that Officer was inspired by an IPS officer, KM Prasanna, from Karnataka who was appointed as the chief of a Special Investigation Team to look into a 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. Nagarjuna is playing Mr Prasanna, who at present is the Additional Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, Mumbai,” RGV had said.

However, it is being claimed that the film might be the copy of Liam Neeson’s Taken.
