Bengaluru: Retired underworld don and real-estate baron Muthappa Rai has been admitted to Manipal hospital in Bengaluru.

As per sources. Muttappa Rai’s condition is said to be serious.

Muthappa Rai was diagnosed with brain cancer two years ago and had undergone treatment at hospitals in New Delhi, Chennai and Bengaluru.

Muthappa Rai hails from Dakshina Kannada district. At one point of time, filmmaker Ramgopal Varma was interested in making a biopic on Rai.

After meeting Rai for almost three hours in 2015, RGV had termed it, “a most amazing meeting” that gave him “a most fascinating understanding of the Bangalore underworld.”

Varma had even thought of a name for the film. “The name of my film on the Bangalore Underworld is going to be Appa and the tagline of is going to be -The Father of all Godfathers,” he had tweeted then.

In 2018, the one-time don had appeared before officials from the Organised Crime Wing in Bengaluru after a video of his family performing a puja in front of a cache of arms and weapons on the occasion of Ayudha Puja went viral on social media.
