“Killing Veerappan” is expected to go on the sets on Friday, which happens to be the birthday of Dr. Rajkumar.

The late actor was kidnapped by Veerappan and kept as hostage for 108 days. Shivarjkumar is essaying the role of a police officer who leads the operation which results in elimination of Veerappan. It is learnt that Ram Gopal Verma is planning this as a multilingual film.
