The actor-director duo had previously collaborated on a 1989 film called Shiva.
The images look as intense, chilling and dark as one would expect from a crime-thriller. Guns, money and chains make an appearance too, as fans everywhere seem to have gone into a tizzy.
28 years ago a film called shiva changed my life and now again another film/what I’m feeling now is something I cannot describe! I only wish that life was so exciting every day👍 #NagRGV4 pic.twitter.com/LxRnQuO0Hv

The movie will be produced by Ram Gopal Varma and Sudheer Chandra under the R-Company banner. Akkineni went on to recall that when he had signed on the dotted line for Shiva 28 years ago, several people had doubted him and it sent shockwaves throughout the industry, however he had proven them wrong as Shiva went on to be a smash hit that was highly lauded by critics and audiences alike.
In response to this statement, Varma responded saying that he usually tends to “over promise and under deliver”, so this once he will “shut up and let the film speak for itself”, according to an Indian Express report.
Varma’s last directorial venture was Sarkar 3 which saw Amitabh Bachchan and Manoj Bajpayee in lead roles, however the film tanked at the box-office and failed to leave a mark.
