Actor-director Sudeep does not want to change the title of his forthcoming film Veera Madhakari he has changed it to Shathamanadha Veera Madhakari.
Sudeep was forced to change the title as writer B.L. Venu filed a petition with the KFCC against using the name of Madhakari (the ruler of Chitradurga), who is a historically significant personality. He argued that since the film is a remake of a Telugu film, using Madhakari"s name will be disrespecting the great ruler.
However, Sudeep is a little disappointed at this development for he had worked very hard for this film and has great expectations from it. Any negative news will harm its popularity and Sudeep, being a hardworking and dedicated professional, does not want that to happen. Sudeep plays the double role of a cop and thief with Ragini, Pavithra, Doddanna, Tennis Krishna and Devaraj in supporting roles.
The shooting of Shathamanadha Veera Madhakari was completed a month ago and the film is now on the post production table.
