The life and the encounter of famous sandalwood smuggler Veerappan has been very notorious and interesting, as he did escape from the combined police and special forces of three states for almost two decades. Veerappan did ruthlessly rule the Saytamangalam forest range and is alleged to have killed about 800 elephants and cut thousands of Sandalwood trees apart from having killed around 227 people including policemen.
Ram Gopal Varma is now making a film on his titled Killing Veerappan and this movie would have popular Kanadda actor Shiva Raj Kumar playing the role of a police official deputed to track and kill him. The first look of the film has been released recently and features Shiva Raj only, and seems that this film would be more of the way Veerapan is tracked down, rather than focusing on his alone. Seems Varma did come-up with many interesting and chilling facts on the final encounter of Veerappan, and this movie would put them before the audience. Stay tuned while we bring you more news on this upcoming movie being made in two languages.
