Since the story of Veeran Maaran is based in the forest, director Thirumani decided to shoot in the forests near Kerala. But, the team was in for a shock as it stumbled upon a king cobra. Running away from it, they chanced upon two elephants. Luckily, forest officials came to their rescue, and the unit shot for the next 20 days under their protection. We're sure hero Rithik and heroine Meenal will have many interesting tales to share once the film is wrapped up!
