A petition seeking to put on hold the release of Ram Gopal Varma’s multilingual film “Killing Veerappan” has been filed in Madras High Court. The petitioner claims the film is full of false information on the forest brigand.


In her statement, petitioner Paneerselvi of Salem said: “The film is filled with false information and will create law and order problems in Tamil Nadu if allowed to release.”

Seeking interim order to put on hold the film, which is slated to release on Friday, she also requested the Central Board of Film Certification’s (CBFC) regional office to revoke the original ‘U’ certification of the film.

The film, which stars Shivrajkumar, Parul Yadav, Yagna Shetty and Sandeep Bharadwaj, is set to release in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

In her complaint, Paneerselvi added that the film portrays only Karnataka Police solely responsible for the killing of Veerappan in 2004, and belittles Tamil Nadu Police and politicians in the process.
