Ace actor Nagarjuna Akkineni is all over the news these days as the theatrical release of his much-awaited 'Wild Dogs' nears. In a recent press brief, the actor spoke about the movie, and his upcoming Bollywood stint, 'Brahmastra'. When asked about his role in the Ayan Mukerji directorial, Nagarjuna said he “can't reveal anything right now.”

He, however, did stress on his character. The actor said, “I can't reveal anything right now. But, I am playing a powerful character in 'Brahmastra'. We recently completed the filming for the first part. The duration of my character in the movie will be around half an hour.”

Meanwhile, Nagarjuna's 'Wild Dog' is set to be released on April 2. Directed by Ahishor Solomon, the movie revolves around the 2007 Hyderabad bomb blasts and stars Dia Mirza, Saiyami Kher, and Atul Kulkarni in other major roles. Naga talked about his character in the movie. He said, “I play ACP Vijay Varma in the movie. He is a good father and husband. He is a very powerful officer yet a good team leader. The reason why he got into NIA is his love for the country. He believes that terrorism will destabilise the nation. So, his pure purpose is to catch terrorists and punish them. I liked the character very much. It is going to be a memorable one in my career. Wild Dog is a new age commercial film, and we are very confident about the film’s success at the box office.”

On the work front, Nagarjuna is planning to produce a film with Vaisshnav Tej of 'Uppena' fame. He also has a commercial actioner with Praveen Sattaru in the works.
