Soorarai Pottru is the dramatized portrayal of retired Army Captain GR Gopinath’s life as the founder of the low-cost airline Air Deccan. The film skipped a theatrical release and bowed directly on OTT but was a big success with Suriya and Aparna both bagging National Awards for their performance. The film ws co-produced by Suriya and Guneet Monga.
The Hindi remake is backed by Suriya and his wife and actor Jyotika as well as Guneet. The film also stars Paresh Rawal.
