Directed by first-timer Ahishor Solomon, the film’s trailer was released last week. Chiranjeevi released the trailer and called Nagarjuna a ‘fearless actor’ for trying out different genres.
Recently, the team completed the final schedule of the movie in the Himalayas. After the successful completion of the schedule, an excited Nagarjuna had posted on Twitter: “Heading home after wrapping up my work for Wild Dog! Feeling sad as I say goodbye to my talented team and the Himalayas.”
