Speaking to a leading daily, Remya had revealed what mad her croon that song and why the makers were convinced to make a cover version for it. “When I listened to the song for the first time, I liked it so much that I wanted to try in my own voice. So, I took it up to Sibi(raj) and Simone K. King, the composer of the film. Then we had a jamming session at his studio, and eventually came up with the cover,” Remya had said.

Varalaxmi Sarathkumar plays a cop in Sathya which was portrayed by Anasuya Bharadwaj in the original version. Varalaxmi is being lauded for her performance in the film from audiences and reviewers all around. Varalaxmi, since the beginning of her career, has been choosing roles which are realistic and are offbeat. And with Sathya, she adds another feather to her hat.
With everything their way, the makers and the cast of Sathya would be an elated bunch and will be soaking in the success of the film.
