After a long time the Tamil film industry will see a biography in the form of Gnanaraja Sekaran's Periyar.
Sathyaraj is the lucky hero who got to impersonate this famous character. The shooting of Periyar took place in Thiruvaiyyaru recently.
The scene which was shot there was Periyar's meeting with devadasis. Swarnamalya is playing the role of one of the devadasis. Jyotirmayi is also part of this movie.
Swarnamalya is excited about her role in the movie, and believes it will help her expose her talents.
Gnanaraja Sekaran says "Now-a-days it has become the trend to throw the hero in bad light as an anti-hero or gangster. The hero should idealistically be a role model to others. So I choose these real characters. I have spent nearly 4 years to prepare the script of this movie. I have planned to elicit the life of Periyar within 2 hours and 40 minutes. I have tried to spot out the incidents unknown to everyone that happened in the life of Periyar".
