After playing Periyar, Sathyaraj is keen on acting in more meaningful roles for the remainder of his career. He is once again donning the role of a real life character in his latest film titled Vambu Sandai. He is rumoured to be doing the role of the former chief election commissioner T.N Seshan!
At the audio launch of the film, Sathyaraj said: "In Vambu Sandai, I'm playing the character of an honest election commissioner who wants to cleanse the system and bring about dignity and accountability to the election process. It is not based on any real life incident. In future too, I will keep doing some meaningful characters like this. I'm playing the role of an ordinary, suffering farmer in a remote village in Thankar's Onbathu Roobhai Nottu. "
The film has Telugu actor Uday Kiran and Diya in the romantic lead, with music by D.Imman. Imman has remixed the popular MGR message song from Kudirunthu Kovil, 'Naan Yaar, Naan Yaar….' which will be picturised on Sathyaraj, who is an ardent fan of MGR.
Meanwhile, Sathyaraj has signed for a new film titled as Thangam (Gold). The film will be directed by debutant director Kicha. With this film, Sathyaraj has a total of 8 films in hand!
