Tamil Superstar Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru has skipped its theatrical release and arrived on Amazon Prime Video in November last year. The movie is a massive blockbuster and has come as a big relief for Amazon Prime Video which only burnt its hands going after many Direct-To-OTT releases.
The movie is now going to Bollywood. It is said that Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar will star in this remake. Sudha Kongara who directed the Original will be wielding the megaphone for this remake. The film will be produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Vikram Malhotra’s Abundantia Entertainment.
Soorarai Pottru is inspired by the book Simply Fly: A Deccan Odyssey by G. R. Gopinath. The book chronicles the struggles and challenges faced by iconic entrepreneur G. R. Gopinath as he aspired to launch a low-cost air service in India. The catch with this remake is that the movie has been watched by the Hindi audience due to the accessibility of Amazon Prime Video.Follow @THEPANIPURI
