"Ready For Your Challenge": Sathyaraj Slams H. Raja And BJP
By Vivek Raj | Galatta | 11:38 AM
There have been various political developments across the nation with Tripura and Tamil Nadu seeing big ramifications in the past few days. After a statue of the Russian revolutionary Lenin was dismantled in Tripura, politician H. Raja from the Bharatiya Janata Party had pointed statues of social reformer E. V. Ramasamy known to the masses as Periyar would be razed to the ground in Tamil Nadu.
The statement drew flak and anger from representatives of all political parties across TN as well as the common public with many from the film fraternity coming out to voice their opinion. Actor Sathyaraj had issued a statement as well earlier today against the recent developments and stated legal action must be initiated against H. Raja saying the followers of Periyar are ready to accept his challenge.
The video was shared by Sathyaraj’s son, Sibiraj on his Twitter page and is as follows:
Sathyaraj's statement in the video when translated is as follows:
"The act of the demolition and vandalization of comrade and revolutionary Lenin’s statue carried out in Tripura needs to be condemned. As for H. Raja’s statement on Periyar’s statues to be demolished in Tamil Nadu, I ask the Tamil Nadu government to initiate legal action against him and would like to remind him that Periyar is not a statue or a name or just a body made of blood, flesh and bones. He is a principle, who fought for the working classes, for the upliftment of women and for the eradication of superstitions. He will live in our hearts and not just in statues. I would also like to remind that you can use all your power and position, but will never be successful in removing Periyar, who lives in our hearts. We are ready to accept your challenge, but do tell us the time and date. Once again, the Tamil Nadu government must move forward with legal action against H. Raja and he should apologise."
It must be noted Sathyaraj had portrayed Periyar in the 2007 Tamil biographical film titled Periyar.

By Ashwin Prabhu | Galatta | 06:48 PM
Being an actor, it could sometimes be difficult for the person to correct themselves unless they are Kamal Haasan who has great knowledge on the technical aspects of a movie. Sibi Sathyaraj who is still in his early stages of acting says he has learned a lot ever since his debut in the year 2003.
“The time seems really long if we see it now but it has taught me so much and the confidence to try unique subjects. Sathya is a remake of the Telugu hit Kshanam. We can’t change too much but it has to be subtle. Director Pradeep of Saithan came into the project and when I think I am about to give up, he shows me what I have done on the monitor. I was surprised that I could do all these things which he brought out from within me,” says an excited Sibiraj during his shoot for Sathya.
