The poster shows Nagarjuna with a sword and a group of people kneeling to him, against the backdrop of London’s Big Ben. The motion poster defines the lead character’s tough nature, stating, ‘You can’t kill him… you can’t run from him… you can’t negotiate with him… you can only beg for mercy…’

The Ghost features Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead. Gul Panag and Anikha Surendran are also a part of the film produced by Narayan Das K Narang, Puskur Ram Mohan Rao and Sharrath Marar.
