Sathyaraj Reveals About His Role In Chennai Express:

Mentioning his role in the Rohit Shetty’s directorial ‘Chennai Express’, Baahubali actor Sathyaraj revealed that he pursued the role for Shahrukh Khan. He said, “When the makers approached me for Chennai Express, I heard the story and I felt that it was not that great a role for me. I conveyed this to the director and also to Shah Rukh Khan, but I eventually did the film, because I like Shah Rukh very much. I like SRK’s acting a lot. His films like DDLJ and several others, did extremely well,”.

Sathyaraj Opens On Not Taking Bollywood Movies

Baahubali actor Sathyaraj received quite some offers after the success of his Bollywood debut film ‘Chennai Express’ although he didn’t take the offers on this he said, “I do get Hindi offers. I was offered a Tiger Shroff film recently, which required me to be 40 days in London. My family situation is such that I can’t go abroad for those many days. Then there was a film with Vidya Balan, but on the same dates as the one required by Veetla Vishesham. The problem is that I speak fluently only in my mother tongue, even in English I barely manage. I can speak other languages if I get a prompt.”
