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. But then, Madras high court has given a stay on the remake after Sikhya Entertainment’s Guneet Monga filed a case for not including them as co-producers as per agreement with 2D Entertainment.
Sudha Kongara who directed the Original will be wielding the megaphone for this remake. 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.Follow @THEPANIPURI
