Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India, said, “We are thrilled to present ‘Koose Munisamy Veerappan’ to our viewers, offering a lesser-known account of one of the India’s Well known Fuguitive. The series sheds light on the intricate dynamics surrounding Veerappan’s life and his profound impact on local communities. In a world where success stories often dominate the narrative, ‘Koose Munisamy Veerappan’ serves as a reminder of the equally compelling and complex stories of individuals whose lives took a darker path. We believe that this series will compel audiences to contemplate the different shades of human experience, drawing them into a story that explores the depths of India’s criminal past.”

For the first time, this detailed version of the interview will be presented in a documentary narrative to the audience on the ZEE5 OTT platform under the title “Koose Munisamy Veerappan.” It is imperative that Veerappan’s story be portrayed with honesty and completeness, incorporating the narratives of the victims. This series is not merely a documentary; it transcends the genre to become an engaging action thriller.”

Prabhavathi, the producer said “We established ‘Dheeran Productions’ with the goal of producing and showcasing local stories at a world-class standard, particularly in an environment where our people’s expectations and acceptance have grown through exposure to numerous international productions. Following the launch of our inaugural production, ‘Koose Munusamy Veerappan,’ a top-tier docu-series, we are confident that the audience for the ‘docu-series’ genre in India will experience a significant surge.”
