Ram Gopal Varma directed upcoming Hindi movie Veerappan is slated to release on May 27th. The maverick director collected his research material based upon interviews with Veerappan’s former gang members, people who used to mediate between him and the government and also from officers who were a part of the operation to capture him.
It is revealed that, the film will have a scene where Veerappan plans to kidnap superstar Rajinikanth, in the same way he had kidnapped Kannada superstar Rajkumar. Fortunately, Veerappan’s plot to kidnap Rajnikanth had been failed owing to unknown reasons.
It is a known fact that, Rajkumar was held for 108 days and finally released without harm in November 2000. Karnataka government paid Rs 20 crore for his release.
“From all the truth I gathered, Veerappan was unbelievable, but what is even more unbelievable is the drama which went behind the plan to kill him,” said RGV in an interview.
Sandeep Bharadwaj portrayed the title role, whereas Sachiin Joshi will be seen as police officer. Usha Jadhav and Lisa Ray are other prominent cast in the film. As informed by RGV, Veerappan is not a remake of his Telugu-Kannada super-hit film Killing Veerappan.
