The director RGV talks about how he earlier was set out to make another film on Veerappan

 

When did you get the idea of making the film on Veerappan? I first heard of Veerappan fifteen years back, when I was shooting in Tamil Nadu. But at a certain time early in 2003, I got an idea when I heard of 3 villagers who tried to catch Veerappan because he was holding Rs 50Lakhs money reward.
