The project has attracted controversies ever since it was announced. Varma created a storm in the Telugu states by visiting Vijayawada to gather information about the real-life story of the two powerful families or communities in the city to portray it on the silver screen. In spite of the threats, Varma went ahead to cast and introduce the characters via Twitter.
After that, Varma shifted his base to Mumbai and got busy with the Hindi version of ‘Killing Veerappan’, leading people to believe that ‘Vangaveeti’ was shelved. But, latest reports suggest that the last schedule is being filmed, and shoot will be wrapped up soon.
‘Vangaveeti’is expected to create a huge storm when it sets out for release especially in the Vijayawada city in residual AP.
