Veerappan’s wife Muthulakshmi takes the Sandalwood route to tell her real story on reel screen. A composed and calm Muthulakshmi answered many questions shot by the media, recently. She confidently spoke in Kannada about her upcoming film Muthulakshmi.

Explaining her stance of coming out with her story, she says, “The day the STF (Special Task Force) took me into custody for two years after the death of Veerappan, I had decided that I would show people my version of the story someday. Back then, I didn’t even have the guts to speak to the media. I only knew that I was Veerappan’s wife with two kids. But there is more to me than that. Muthulakshmi will explore my life secrets.”

On screen, she will take us through her childhood, teenage, married life, motherhood and all the trouble she went through, before and after Veerappan. “In spite of all the difficulties I have faced, I still survive. I want everybody, especially women, to know what I am deep down,” says Muthulakshmi. “The film will not affect anyone who was involved in Veerappan’s case, as there will not be any mention of the police officers or any person who played an important role in his life. My children know about this film and I have made sure that it will not affect them in any way,” she adds.

Muthulakshmi was approached by many producers and directors who were keen to present her story, but she couldn’t trust anybody. “They wanted my story, but planned their own versions that I didn’t agree to. The director and producer of the film Muthulakshmi have promised to steer the movie my way. Every scene will be monitored by me. I also have a few scenes in the film,” she says.
