Sathyaraj is undoubtedly a known face throughout Indian cinema, as he donned the role of Kattappa in the Prabhas starrer movie franchise, Baahubali. However, it seems that the actor is set to add another feather to his list of accolades.

In a recent update, it was reported that actor Sathyaraj is set to play the role of incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his upcoming biopic. Even though an official confirmation has yet to come in, it would be interesting to see the actor in a grand role like this.

Sathyaraj is set to play the role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi

In various reports, it has been stated that the Baahubali actor is set to play the role of Prime Minister Modi. Previously, in 2019, PM Modi’s life story was made into a biographical drama called PM Narendra Modi starring Vivek Oberoi in the lead and directed by Omung Kumar.

However, the movie was initially met with heavy criticism from the audience, especially on the actor’s performance. Now, it seems that the story of the PM will become a movie again, with a talented actor like Sathyaraj playing the role.

Interestingly, this would also make it actor Sathyaraj’s second biographical movie in his filmography. Back in 2007, the actor starred in the role of Tamil social reformer and rationalist Periyar EV Ramasamy, which even won the Tamil Nadu State Film Award Special Prize.

Sathyaraj’s work front

Sathyaraj was last seen in 2024 with the film Singapore Saloon. The coming-of-age movie directed by Gokul featured RJ Balaji in the lead role with Meenakshi Chaudhary, Lal, Kishen Das, Ann Sheetal, Thalaivasal Vijay, John Vijay, and many more playing pivotal roles. Moreover, the movie also had Lokesh Kanagaraj, Aravind Swamy, and Jiiva making cameo appearances.

The movie’s trailer was released recently and offered a glimpse into their characters. The film, directed by Guhan Seniappan is set to feature Vasanth as an assassin who is trying to hunt down Sathyaraj, who is considered to be a superhuman.
