It is known that Ram Gopal Varma tried to direct a film on Veerappan previously, but due to the unknown reasons that project was shelved then, but RGV is trying to script the movie with the support of the Smuggler Veerappan's wife.
RGV met the wife of the smuggler 8 years back but the project which could not take a proper turn then, now again in the news. Before starting the shoot itself, RGV asked Veerappan's wife Mutthulaxmi to come to the international media and speak few words about her. Though she refused in the beginning, upon Ramu's compulsion, she is getting ready to speak to the media.
Regarding this, Mutthulaxmi said that, Ram Gopal Varma met her previously in 2007 and conformed that they both are into a contract then itself for a movie on Veerappan. But due to some issues, the project was stopped then. But now RGV met her again and inquired about every detail of Veerappan and ready to bring her into the media too now.
Ram Gopal Varma who is known for his controversial attempts in the movies is again hyping his movies with such a big controversial idea that to bring a smuggler's wife into media. But whatever the case, this attempt will add a huge publicity for the film undoubtedly.
