Veteran actor Sathyaraj’s daughter Divya Sathyaraj has garnered a name for herself as a reputed nutritionist in Chennai, Tamil Nadu and has engaged in numerous goodwill causes by setting up several vitamin awareness camps for Tamil people living in refugee camps over the years. Divya Sathyaraj, who also serves as an ambassador for the non-profit organization, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, had a while back revealed her interest in politics. She stated that she aims to lay focus on people's health and nutrition and added that she must be a part of the system in order to bring about a change in it. 

Ever since Divya Sathyaraj's statement in regard to entering politics, there has been a discussion as to whether her father and legendary Tamil actor Sathyaraj would be campaigning for her. Now, an official statement from the desk of Divya Sathyaraj has been issued and is as follows: 

'Actor Sathyaraj’s daughter Divya is a leading nutritionist in India, she had written a letter to the PMO a few years ago criticising the NEET exams and the letter had gone viral. Divya has started a people’s movement called "Mahilmadhi Iyakkam" to provide nutritious food free of cost to people in the lower income group. She had also requested the Minister of Agriculture to provide direct income support to the small farmers thus compensating their loss due to the COVID-19 lockdown.' 

The statement further reads, 'Ever since Divya Sathyaraj announced that she is interested in politics and had started field work two years ago, there has been a lot of speculation that the legendary actor is all set to campaign for his daughter in the next elections. It is an undeniable fact that Sathyaraj is an extraordinary speaker and several speeches of his have gone viral on social media. We reached out to Divya to get a clarification and she stated, "My dad has been unconditionally supportive of my dreams, he will definitely hold my hand and walk with me in my political journey, but I would like to stress on the fact that I am a self made, independent person and I have never used my dad’s name or fame to excel in my career as a nutritionist.'"
