Ram Gopal Varma's keenly anticipated Veerappan has been granted an 'A' certificate by the Censor Board with a few minor changes. One key scene that has been chopped off involves Sandeep Bhardwaj (who essays the title role) when he says that LTTE chief Prabhakaran had killed Rajiv Gandhi.
RGV also confirmed one more scene that has been slightly altered involving the killing of an infant. "The scene looks even better with a minor alteration," he said. The Kannada film Killing Veerappan did reasonably well at the Box Office and was appreciated by the critics. It remains to be seen how the Hindi version fares with the audience and the critics.
