The only secret actor Sathyaraj kept from his dear daughter - why Kattappa killed Bahubali

Veteran actor Sathyaraj who plays the famous Kattappa in Bahubali loves his daughter to death, but even she could not get in on his secret about why he killed Bahubali in the movie.  Divya Sathyaraj, his daughter, is a renown nutritionist, and says she and her dad are the best of friends.  Sathyaraj would narrate her the scripts of his movies ever since she was 10; he'd ask the whole family - Divya, her mother and brother Sibi- if he should take up the project.

Veteran actor Sathyaraj who plays the famous Kattappa in Bahubali loves his daughter to death, but even she could not get in on his secret about why he killed Bahubali in the movie.

Divya Sathyaraj, his daughter, is a renown nutritionist, and says she and her dad are the best of friends.

Sathyaraj would narrate her the scripts of his movies ever since she was 10; he'd ask the whole family - Divya, her mother and brother Sibi- if he should take up the project.

After hearing him share a dialogue from Bahubali, despite loving it, Divya had second thoughts about whether he should accept the movie. Because the film shooting would mean long absences of her father who'd be away at Hyderabad.

But once the movie was released, it became a cult hit and everyone in her circle wanted to know 'just why did Kattappa kill Bahubali.'

Divya Sathyaraj tells Deccan Chronicle that none in her family asked Sathyaraj why he did so. Though she and her brother played a lot of guessing game related to this in front of Sathyaraj.

Sathyaraj would smile. But never opened his mouth beyond that.
