Suriya starrer Soorarai Pottru was released in 2020 and received positive reviews from critics and the audience. In the film, Suriya played the role of Nedumaaran Rajangam (Maara), a former Air Force officer.
Helmed by Sudha Kongara, the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru also stars Radhika Madan and Paresh Rawal. The film is inspired by the events of the life of Simplify Deccan founder GR Gopinath, who dreamt of starting a low-cost airline in India.
The shooting began in April, and the makers are yet to announce the film’s release date.
