Sathyaraj, a highly versatile Tamil actor, has had an illustrious career in the film industry. He first made a mark by portraying antagonists and later transitioned to lead roles, showcasing his exceptional acting range. In recent times, he has gained immense acclaim for his remarkable character portrayals, including his powerful performance as the social reformer Periyar in a dedicated biopic.

Responding to recent rumors, Sathyaraj addressed the speculation surrounding his portrayal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a biopic. During an interview with Minnambalam, a Tamil website, he categorically dismissed the rumors as completely unfounded. Sathyaraj made it clear that he had not been approached to portray PM Modi in any film, and deemed it surprising to learn about such news that gained traction on social media. He expressed his frustration with the spread of baseless information and highlighted how social media has become a breeding ground for such mindless rumors. Clarifying on the rumours he said , “The news that I am acting in the Prime Minister Modi biopic is news even to me. Nobody has approached me to play PM Modi in the film. People spread random news on social media.”

It is worth noting that Sathyaraj is an ardent follower of Periyar's ideologies and has publicly stated his refusal to be part of any film that promotes anti-Periyarist beliefs. He remains steadfast in upholding his principles and values.

Earlier, actor Vivek Oberoi portrayed PM Modi in a biopic directed by Omung Kumar.

On the professional front, Sathyaraj eagerly awaits the release of his upcoming Tamil film, 'Weapon'. In this exciting project, he essays the role of a superhuman, sharing the screen with talented actors Vasanth Ravi and Rajiv Menon in pivotal roles. 'Weapon' is set for a theatrical release on May 23rd, promising audiences an enthralling cinematic experience.
