Veeresh’s life has also been one with some obstacles, one of which was when multiplexes in Karnataka began discriminating against Kannada films, looking for reasons to not screen them, as Kannada movies didn't earn much profit for the theatres as it was tax-free.

He raised his voice against this discrimination, encouraging other movie directors to speak about the same. They also approached the KFCC for help on this, but in vain. He was unable to recover the money he invested in the movie Actor and faced loss, not because the movie wasn't appreciated but due to the wrongdoings of the multiplex owners.
