Chennai: A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court seeking an interim stay on the release of Ram Gopal Varma's multi-lingual film Killing Veerappan, based on the operation leading to the killing of the dreaded forest brigand, on the grounds it is full of "false information."
Citing the trailer of the film released recently, petitioner Paneerselvi of a village in Salem district alleged that the "entire movie is filled up with false information which is nothing but creating law and order problems in Tamil Nadu."
Seeking a a direction to the state Home Secretary and the Censor Board's regional office to file a report with regard to issue of “U” certificate to the film, she sought an interim injunction on the release of the film, set for 1 January.
The petitioner claimed that the director of the film, produced by Sivaprakash in various languages including Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi, degraded Tamils, speficically women, and depicted that Karnataka police alone had taken all steps to curb the menace of the sandalwood smuggler who was killed in 2004 in a joint operation by the two states.
The petitioner further submitted that the movie falsely depicted the wife of Veerappan as having killed several persons.
The film director had visualised some "negative" images about Tamil Nadu police and politicians, she charged.
