Much to the surprise of the audience, the title of the Tamil actor Yogi Babu’s next is said to change. It was announced earlier that the project helmed by debutant Yasin is titled Veerappanin Gajana but it seems like it has not gone down well with Veerappan’s family and the makers have reportedly decided to change the title as per their request. 

The film is based on the life of Veerappan, who was a notorious sandalwood smuggler at the Sathyamangalam forest, Tamil Nadu. The shooting of the adventure-comedy film starring Yogi Babu in a vital role, was done in the southern parts of Tenkasi and Nagercoil. The further shoot will be done either in Talakona or Kerala, according to the makers.

Yogi Babu, who is noted for his recent performance in the anthology Navarasa, will be playing the role of a YouTouber in the film. According to the Times of India report, the director had revealed this is going to be an interesting project. The movie will be tracing the lives of a few people in search of treasure in a forest and one of the main characters will be Yogi Babu. Yogi Babu meets Mottai Rajendran, another interesting character who is in search of his pet monkey. The director also added that his movie will be featuring actors like Rajesh, Deva, Pooja, Jeevitha and Ilango in pivotal roles.

The first look poster of the movie was released earlier this month, which had a retro-aesthetic style, featuring the main characters. Produced by Prabadish, the film is written by Sy Gowthamraj, the director of Raatchasi, the hit movie starring Jyothika.  

Even though the Veerappanin Gajana team has now decided to change their title, they are yet to decide on the new one. The announcement of the new title is expected to be a great gesture of progress from the crew, which is awaited by many.
