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 this film is not based on any specific incident. It is inspired by various other incidents.”
