King Nagarjuna is playing NIA officer Vijay Varma in his upcoming flick ‘Wild Dog’. Diya Mirza plays the female lead and actress Sayami Kher does a crucial role in this Nag starrer. This investigative thriller is helmed by Solomon, while Niranjan Reddy and Anvesh Reddy jointly bankroll this movie.

The shooting of ‘Wild Dog’ is completed and the unit is busy finishing off the post-production works. Meanwhile, this movie is bought by Netflix at a whopping 27 Cr for a direct release on the OTT platform.

Besides, the producers can also sell the satellite rights as well separately. Hence, the makers will get another 10 crores making it a profitable project even before its release.

Netflix bought films like ‘Uma Maheshwara Ugra Roopasya’, Keerthy Suresh ‘Miss India’. But, this is the first time for the digital platform to buy a big star’s film for a direct release.

After ‘Manmadhudu 2’, Nagarjuna has successfully hosted Telugu Bigg Boss season 4. Now, he is all set to thrill the audience on Netflix with ‘Wild Dog’.

The news has turned out to be false as it is finally set to hit the theatres on 2nd April 2021.
