Sathyaraj in Tollywood after 27 years
Twenty seven years after doing small roles in Telugu films, Sathyaraj, one of the most talented and prolific actors of Tamil Nadu, will be seen again in a Telugu film, this time in a prominent role! Recently, Telugu film director Shiva offered Sathyaraj the role of Gopichand’s father in his upcoming film.
Appreciating the potential of the role, Sathyaraj promptly accepted. Speaking about this, Sathyaraj said he is excited to act in a Telugu film after such a long gap, recalling that he played sidekick to villains or roles of lesser importance in the days when Shobhana Babu and Suman were heroes. Sathyaraj added that the role offered now is of great importance and he will gain prominence in Andhra Pradesh with it.
At present, Sathyaraj is one of the busiest actors of Kollywood with his involvement in Sangamithra, Pettai Mudhal Kottai Varai, and an untitled film with Navdeep! He is perhaps the only Kollywood hero who gives stiff competition to his own son in the acting arena! (Sathyaraj’s son Sibiraj is a well-known actor in Kollywood).
