The actor got highly famous in Telugu and other languages, because of his Katappa role in Baahubali films. He was already a star hero in Tamil, and Baahubali made him even more popular in his own language and elsewhere too.
Many directors brought him to Telugu in different films and he did find success with Mirchi kind of films but Baahubali is a different level of success.
Now, the actor's Tamil film, Theerpugal Virkapadum is releasing as Emergency in Telugu, simultaneously. This is a revenge drama but it is not a regular film.
Maruthi Dasari tweeted the Telugu film first look and wrote,
"Happy to present #Emergency 1st Look Starring our dear #Sathyaraj sir. Best wishes to the entire team".
The actor looks to have even reduced his weight for the role and he looks ready to kill, with just his eyes. Movie is written & directed by debutant Dheeran.
