The hit director-actor jodi of Ram Gopal Varma and Akkineni Nagarjuna are back for their fourth venture together. The action film which is untitled as yet and is being called #NagRGV4 as of now, went on floors in Mumbai today (Tuesday) and the actor took to social media to share a picture from the sets. Naga is seen in an action avatar, wielding a pistol, while trying to save a little girl. He looked dashing as he shared the picture with a caption that read, “Feeling thrilled shooting in Mumbai for @rgvzoomin ‘s Action Film ..We are back again👍 #NagRgv4.”
The director, who has been in news for his controversial web series God, Sex and Truth, also took to Twitter to RT the picture with an interesting anecdote, “It was @iamnagarjuna who kick started me with my debut film SHIVA ..and after all these years I really needed a second KICK ON MY BUTT.” To which, Nagarjuna promptly replied with, “What are friends for my friend!! Kick ready.” While this proved that the director-actor duo share a great camaraderie, RGV’s next tweet also revealed how he is under pressure to make sure that this actioner with Nagarjuna meets fans’ expectations.

RGV said, “Hey Nag all your fans are anyway waiting to kick me if I don’t deliver a big hit with u …So u please reserve your kicks for the villains in our film and let ur fans reserve their kicks for me (sic).” The filmmaker also revealed that the release date and title of this much awaited film will be announced soon. RGV and Nagarjuna had first collaborated for Shiva (1990). The film was based on student politics in a Mafia backdrop and was a remake of Varma’s debut Telugu film, Siva (1989). Shiva became a blockbuster and made RGV a name to reckon with. The two later went on to join forces for films like Antham / Drohi (1992) and Govinda Govinda (1994).
In November last year, Nagarjuna had tweeted about his new film with RGV and said, “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.” Even Varma described the film as something none of them have ever done before, “I am extremely excited that I am doing a film with Nagarjuna after nearly 25 years but contrary to some uninformed media speculations,this new film is nothing to do with SHIVA, neither in character nor in story content..Its a very different but an extremely realistic action film set against a story such as neither me nor Nagarjuna has ever done before.” We are sure fans are equally thrilled and excited about this reunion.
