Satyaraj's name sells



From "Maha Nadigan" ...

SURELY BUT silently Satyaraj is proving to be a safe bet for filmmakers. His "Adithadi" yielded satisfactory results and now "Jore" with son Sibi in tow has the makers smiling their way to the bank. The reason is that Satyaraj who has established a unique style for himself is taking up roles that suit his age.

His next film, "Maha Nadigan" which is now progressing at a rapid pace, traces the rise of a man from very humble beginnings to the position of a big actor.

And though "Maha Nadigan" has three heroines — Namitha, Mumtaz and Mallika (the village girl of "Autograph") — Satyaraj is paired with none. Bharatiraja's son Manoj is also doing an important role in the film.

Shakti Chidambaram, the director of profitable ventures such as "Ennamma Kannu" and "Charlie Chaplin," is "Maha Nadigan" 's director.

The expectation that the project has generated is surprising, but a unit member has an explanation:

"We had posters of the film with the query, `Can an actor become a Chief Minister?' splashed all over the city.

"The attention it drew was instantaneous ... the gimmick has now kindled a lot of interest in the film."
