Maara Theme: Suriya raps for Soorarai Pottru
Suriya’s ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is a film that’s eagerly awaited by many, including fans as well as common cine lovers. The film directed by Sudha Kongara of ‘Irudhi Suttru’ fame is currently in the post-production phase. For the last few months, music director GV Prakash has been busy with the composings. He recently got lead actor Suriya to record a rap song. The track is titled as ‘Maara Theme’. This marks Suriya’s first time collaboration with GV Prakash and also his first attempt in singing a rap track.
GV Prakash has pinned high hopes on ‘Soorarai Pottru’. The film has a lot of scope for music and he started composing for nearly a year back. He has recorded a couple of songs with Kerala-based indie rock band ‘Thaikkudam Bridge’ and ‘Agam’ fame Harish Sivaramakrishnan.
‘Soorarai Pottru’ scripted jointly by Shalini Usha Nair and Sudha Kongara is loosely based on the life of GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan, who is also a retired captain of the Indian army. Malayali actress Aparna Balamurali plays the female lead. Paresh Rawal, Jackie Shroff and Mohan Babu will also be seen in prominent roles.
Sikhya Entertainment is producing the film jointly with Suriya’s own production house, 2D Entertainment. The makers are eyeing a Pongal release, in January next year.
