Veerappan is based on the dreaded sandalwood smuggler Koose Muniswamy Veerappan. It features how a man-hunt was initiated to kill him.

it's very important to study bad people like Veerappan because knowledge of how to finish bad people is what which advances society— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 25, 2016
Making Veerappan is not about glorifying a criminal but it's to put a mirror to how he was allowed to happen in the first place— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 25, 2016
Veerappan stars Sandeep Bharadwaj, Sachiin Joshi, Usha Jadhav and Lisa Ray and will release on May 27.
