Satyaraj once again appears in the role of a tamil revolutionary leader Periyar EV Ramasamy in a film.

This is in none other than the Prabhu Deva starrer Kalavadiya Pozhuthugal directed by Thankar Bachan.

Satyaraj's role was kept a secret inially, but yesterday the director disclosed the secret at a press meet at the film location at Mohan Studio in Chennai.

Satyaraj said: "When Thankar asked me to make a special appearance in this song, I was all excited as I owe a lot to him. In my 31 years of film life, it is his film Onbathu Roopa Nottu that fetched me a lot of accolades and got the best reviews from the media. I have decided to do good character roles like what Amitabh Bachchan did in Sarkar or Sivaji Ganesan in Thevar Magan.."

According to Thankar Bachan, Kalavadiya Pozhuthugal will be different from the usual flicks. Satyaraj has shaved his head to do a special appearance as Periyar and CPM state secretary N. Varadarajan is also there in this song. 'It is my dream project', says Thankar.

Prabhu Deva said, "When I signed this film a lot of people in the industry told me that it"s not going to be an easy ride. Nothing has happened like that in the past 15 days shoot. I completely handed over myself to Thankar..."

Bhumika Chawla plays the lead lady role and Bharadwaj has composed the tunes and the background score.
