It was to be directed by the Chak De India fame Shimit Amin. But the unexpected killing of Veerappan after the film was announced, made RGV to shelve the film. Now he has got onto another film that will focus on the events that lead to the killing.
He has started shooting for Killing Veerappan, based on the killer of the most wanted forest brigand. This will be his first project in Kannada, but it will also be dubbed into Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, as the film's subject will be quite topical to viewers of these languages.
