Ram Gopal Varma revealed that Officer was inspired by an IPS officer, KM Prasanna, from Karnataka who was appointed as the chief of a Special Investigation Team to look into a reputed cop in Mumbai. “It’s the details that IPS officer K M Prasanna personally told me in 2010 that finally became the story of Officer. Nagarjuna is playing Mr Prasanna, who at present is the Additional Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, Mumbai,” RGV had said.
