Sunny Leone has shot for few portions of the film already and will soon resume to complete the remaining ones. However, the film seems to have hit a roadblock after a Pro-Kannada group Karnataka Rakshana Vedike has protested the actress’ casting in the film.

Karnataka Rakshana Vedike has objected to Sunny Leone being part of Veeramadevi and stated that the warrior princess was of great importance to the state of Karnataka. The group also stated that they will not let an adult film actress portray the role of such great historical prominence to their state and culture.
