Pic Talk: Akkineni Hero In CustodyNaga Chaitanya Akkineni is celebrating his birthday today and marking the occasion, the makers of his upcoming film have dropped the title and first look poster.

The poster confirms that the film has been titled Custody and we also get a glimpse of Chaitanya.

Chaitanya is seen as a cop. What’s more interesting is that Chay is being grabbed and held back by cops. Why is a cop being tamed down by his fellow officers? This could be an indication of the theme of the film.

There’s a raw and rugged look in the poster. Venkat Prabhu is known for making commercial potboilers with this tone and he appears to be working on another one from this genre.

Chaitanya hadn’t played a full fledged cop till now and it should be refreshing for his fans to watch him as one in Custody.

Custody is being made in Telugu and Tamil. The film will release in 2023. It is directed by Venkat Prabhu and it has Krithi Shetty in the female lead role.

Ilayaraaja and Yuvan Shankar Raja are both composing the music for the film. It has a host of very capable actors like Aravind Swamy, SarathKumar, Priyamani and others in important roles. The theatrical release date will be announced soon.
