Veerappan’s Wife to Act
The much talked about film on the deceased forest brigand Veerappan is finally on. Even before he was killed in an encounter with the Special Task Force cops, there were plans to make a film about him. After his death, the plans were in a limbo. Now, efforts are on to revive the plans. The film is going to be made in Tamil with Arjun in the lead.
Veerappan’s real-life widow, Muthulakshmi, is going to play the role of the brigand’s onscreen wife. Arjun is the police officer who captures him. A veteran Telugu actor will be brought in to play the role of Kannada superstar Rajkumar, whom Veerappan had kidnapped in real life. The film’s shooting is going to begin in April this year. It will be shot on venue in the jungles of Karnataka and Tamilnadu border. Ramesh is directing this film.
