Set against a stormy background, with flashes of lightning and rain battering down, we see a hood donned Nagarjuna in a defiant stance staring down a group of people who, understandably, appear to be fearful of the star, with some bowing down to him and some raising their hands as if to shield themselves. The Telugu heavyweight is also seen grasping a sword, its blade covered in blood, hinting at what inspired the uneasiness of the people facing him. A closer inspection also reveals the towering figure of London’s Big Ben, signalling that the film’s story might have a few overseas elements in its plot as well.
With a pre-look of the film unveiled a few days back, makers had promised to release the movie’s full first look in connection with its lead actor’s birthday. Along with Nagarjuna, Kajal Aggarwal, Gul Panag and Anikha Surendran will also be seen in The Ghost.
The film’s shoot had witnessed several delays in its shoot, brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and its second schedule had made way in Hyderabad this month, according to reports in Pinkvilla.
The upcoming film is produced by NarayanDas Narang, Puskur RamMohan Rao and Sharrath Marar, under their respective banners Sree Venkateshwara LLP and Northstar Entertainment.
