Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru OTT Release Postponed


Sudha Kongara’s Soorarai Pottru was the first big release in Tamil cinema to choose direct OTT release. While the actor announced that the film would release on October 30 on Amazon Prime Video, he has now said that the film will, unfortunately, have to skip this date.

Suriya informed his fans in the letter that the film, set in the aviation industry, was yet to obtain all the required no-objection certificates (NOC) from the Indian Airforce and that therefore its release had to be pushed.

“Unfortunately, the wait for the film’s release will now be a little longer than anticipated. As you all know SP is a story set in the aviation industry. So we had to deal with numerous procedures and permissions because it’s a matter of national security and we were dealing with real Indian Airforce aircraft and security. A few new NOCs are still pending for approval, and we understand the wait is inevitable as this adverse time is demanding more and more focus on the nation and its priorities, than anything else! When we started Soorarai Pottru we thought the only challenges we would face will be shooting at never-before-shot-locations, working with people of different languages, and bringing in personnel with different skill sets to bring alive the magnificent world of Maara. However, what pains me is how eagerly my well-wishers were waiting for this but we seem to have no other option. I personally hope that my well-wishers will take this in good spirit, with love and faith,” he wrote.

While Soorarai Pottru’s release has now been pushed, the actor shared a sneak-peek from a friendship song titled ‘Aagasam Song’. The film’s music has been composed by GV Prakash Kumar.

Directed by Sudha Kongara, the film also stars Aparna Balamurali, Paresh Rawal, Urvashi, Karunas among others. It is inspired by the real-life story of Captain Gopinath who founded Air Deccan, India’s first low-cost airline.
