Nagarjuna's upcoming action thriller, Wild Dog, is all set to skip theatrical release and premiere directly on Netflix on January 26, say reports.
The Ahishor Solomon directorial venture was recently wrapped up in the Himalayan region of Manali and is currently in its last leg of post-production.
Based on real incidents, Wild Dog shows Nagarjuna as Vijay Varma, an encounter specialist and a National Investigation Agency (NIA) officer.
The film also features Saiyami Kher as the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent. The actor was trained in mixed martial arts to play the part.
Wild Dog, which marks Nagarjuna's first collaboration with Ahishor, also has Dia Mirza, Atul Kulkarni, and Ali Reza in prominent roles. David Ismalone, who earlier composed action sequences in films like Fast & Furious 7, A Man Will Rise and Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, has been roped in to choreograph action scenes in Wild Dog.
Produced under Matinee Entertainment, Wild Dog has dialogues by Kiran Kumar.
