Suniel Shetty to be part of AMR Ramesh's Veerappan web series?
Director AMR Ramesh is currently in discussions with the Bollywood hero to offer him a supercop’s role in the series portraying the forest brigand
Director AMR Ramesh recently announced that he is coming up with a web series on Veerappan, and a curtain-raiser is likely to be released on July 23. Meanwhile, the makers, who are planning to come up with 10 hours of content on the forest brigand, have signed up Kishore to play the role of Veerappan. He had earlier played a similar role in Attahasa.
Going by the latest buzz, the director is also planning to bring down a handful of artistes from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu cinema. It is being said that Ramesh is currently in discussions with Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty to bring him on board.
Confirming the speculations to Cinema Express, the Cyanide director said, “Yes, I am keen on casting the Bollywood actor as a supercop in our web series. We are in our initial rounds of discussions.” Ramesh added that a confirmation will be made once they finalise the terms with the actor.
“It’s the same case with a few other artistes whom we are currently in talks with,” he said.
Suniel Shetty, who has been a successful star in Bollywood for over 25 years, made his Kannada film debut with Sudeep-starrer Pailwaan, which was directed by Krishna.
If everything falls in place, Veerappan will be the actor’s first attempt in a web series. The project is being made under the banner of AMR Ramesh Pictures. The director has also written the story and is producing it along with Indumathi. Veerappan will have music composed by Vijai Shankar while two cinematographers — Vijay Milton and Vaidy S — will handle the camera work.
