The raw and rugged poster features Chay as a cop and what is more interesting is that he is being grabbed and held back by other cops. This will be Chaitanya's first film as a cop. so it will be refreshing for his fans to watch him as one in Custody. The tagline of the film is: 'You Must be the Change You Wish to See in The World.'
Naga Chaitanya will be seen as an honest and determined police officer named A. Shiva, as seen on his nametag. The poster also suggests that the film is 'A Venkat Prabhu Hunt' which could mean that the cops who are holding him back in the poster and trying to hunt and nab Chay as he is the one on the run.
‘Custody’ is one of Naga Chaitanya’s most expensive films. It will star Krithi Shetty as the female lead, Arvind Swami as the antagonist, while Priyamani, Sampath Raj, Sarathkumar, Premji, Vennela Kishore, and Premi Vishwanath among others will be seen in supporting roles.
