Veteran actor-politician Sarath Kumar has played many interesting cop roles in his long career. His last release Irai (streaming on aha Tamil) had him essaying a police officer. One of his upcoming projects, The Smile Man, too, will have him portraying a cop. Now, another film has been announced in which he will be donning the khaki again.
