A report published in Bombay Times stated that a sequence in the upcoming film will be about a plot sketched by Veerappan to kidnap superstar Rajinikanth. The director has said he has learnt about this plan through close alias of the bandit. It is notable that Veerappan has kidnapped Kannada superstar Rajkumar. RGV says, "From all the truth I gathered, Veerappan's story was unbelievable. But what is even more unbelievable is the drama which went behind the plan to kill him."
