Telugu superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna is all set to be seen on the big screen as an Interpol officer in the highly-anticipated The Ghost - Killing Machine, which has been announced to be coming out in theatres on October 5. The upcoming film will be coming out as a pan-Indian venture in Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam languages, and has been jointly produced by Sri Venkateswara Cinemas LP and Northstar Entertainment Banners. Directed by Praveen Sattaru of PSV Garudavega and Chandamama Kathalu, the film will be released in Tamil under the title Ratchan - The Ghost, which has now been revealed to be opening in cinemas across Tamil Nadu in the first week of October alongside the Telugu version. 

Nagarjuna, who was recently seen in the Bollywood fantasy action-adventure film Brahmāstra: Part One, is returning to Tamil screens with Ratchan - The Ghost after his 2016 blockbuster Thozha. While every big film around the country is being released to attract a pan-Indian audience nowadays, the iconic Telugu superstar has been doing the same with his films in other state languages ​​for more than 20 years and is the main reason behind his huge fan following across the nation. Nagarjuna will be portraying Vikram, a highly trained and extremely lethal Interpol officer in Ratchan - The Ghost, with his character, described to be a never before seen avatar for the actor. 

The Ghost teaser, which was released last month, has been well-received by fans, while the trailer of the film has crossed 10 million views and continues to go strong. Sonal Chauhan of Dictator and Ruler fame has been cast as the female lead opposite Nagarjuna, while Gul Panag and Anika Surendran also play pivotal roles. Mukesh G has handled the cinematography, while Dinesh Subbarayan and Kecha have designed the fight sequences, and Mark K Robin, who composed the music for films like Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya and Shambi Reddy, has done the background score for Ratchan - The Ghost. It is to be noted and remembered that 33 years ago, Nagarjuna's Shiva directed by Ram Gopal Varma, had come out in the first week of October 1989 and became a trendsetter and is still regarded as one of the best films to date.
