This film is based on a biography on Veerappan title ‘Veerappan: The Untold Story‘ written by the Mysore-based journalist Sunaad Raghuram. The hunt for Veerappan had gone for decades.Veerappan’s wife Muthulakshmi flew down to Mumbai recently and met Varma and they reportedly discussed the storyline of the film.
