Bollywood director Ram Gopal Varma on Wednesday said that he does not aim to glorify dreaded sandalwood smuggler Veerappan with his film and added that the upcoming movie aims to find out how such characters are born.

“My film is not a glorification of Veerappan. The film tells you about how he was killed and it also tries to find out how such characters are born. The issue is not whether my film will send out a positive or negative message. Veerappan was a reality of our society, who posed a serious questions about the internal security of the country. My film also features the brave police officers, who killed Veerappan after a difficult search campaign,” he said.
