It’s not Priyamani or Divya Spandana, but Lakshmi Rai who would play the female lead in ‘Vana Yudhdham‘, a biopic on forest brigand Veerapan, directed by AMR Ramesh of ‘Kuppi‘ fame. In other words, the actress will play the role of Veerapan‘s wife in this movie.
Confirming this, the ‘Kanchana‘ and ‘Mankatha‘ actress says, “Yes, it is true that I have been approached by Ramesh for Vana Yudhdham. But I have asked some time from him due to date issues. And he has promised that he would work out schedules according to my dates.”
Kishore plays the lead role in this film, which grabbed attention right from the day it was announced, thanks to its ‘controversial subject’. However, Ramesh, who is an expert in filming real life issues, assures that he would not take sides while presenting the story of Veerapan.
“The film will present on screen the real life of Veerapan. It will be an honest attempt without being partial to any side. We have done intense research to know about Veerapan. We met a lot of people, including those very close to the forest brigand,” adds the director.
