Chennai: Director Hari Gopalakrishnan says actor Sathyaraj`s role as a police officer in upcoming Tamil actioner `Poojai` will be his career`s most powerful role ever. He says the role is so powerful that even revealing the name of his character would become a spoiler.
"Sathyaraj sir was really excited about the role when I narrated it to him. He plays a fierce cop in the film and I can say without an iota of doubt that it`s the most powerful role in his career. Even if I reveal his charactera`s name, it would become a huge spoiler," Hari told IANS.
Sathyaraj shaved his head for the role.
"When I told him that he had to shave his head for his character, I assumed he would not be interested, but to my surprise he instantly agreed to do it. It will remind audiences of his role in films such as `Walter Vetrivel` and `Nooravathu Naal`," he added.
Vishal Krishna and Shruti Haasan play the lead roles in `Poojai`, produced by the former`s home banner Vishal Film Factory.
