Says director Ramesh of Kuppi fame, ' I am not here to glorify anyone. I am not taking any sides. My forthcoming movie Vanayudham based on sandalwood smuggler Veerappan will reveal the real incidents that happened during the times of Veerappan'.
Kishore plays Veerappan while Arjun dons the role of tough cop Vijayakumar and Vijayalakshmi dons the role of Veerappan's wife Muthulakshmi.
One of those abducted along with Kannada matinee idol Rajkumar by Veerappan works in my unit. He gives me narrations on Veerappan's looks and his body language. Also we did intense research and collected a lot of materials about him, he says.
Titled Vanayudham, the movie will be a historical refernce for future generation on Veerappan. It would be a visual treat as it involves top-notch technicians, he adds.
