Talking about the film, actor Kathir earlier told Silverscreen, “The lead character in Sathru is a cop, but a cop who is different, not like the ones in films like Singam 3. This film depicts many incidents that have parallels in real life, but it is not based on any specific incident. It is inspired by various other incidents.”
Actor Kathir, who won the hearts of many with his performance in Mari Selvaraj’s Pariyerum Perumal, will be seen in a commercial role for the first time. On the work front, Kathir has the sports drama Jada directed by debutant Kumaran, and a pivotal role in Thalapathy 63 by Atlee.
