Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru release postponed
Suriya’s highly anticipated film ‘Soorari Pottru’ was scheduled to release in Amazon Prime Video on October 30. Much to the disappointment of the fans, the star has announced that release has been postponed. Since the film is set in the aviation industry, the makers are yet to obtain all the required no objection certificates (NOC) from the Indian Airforce, due to which the release has been pushed.
Suirya in a statement posted in his Twitter handle has written,
“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. Though easily said, it was a mammoth task to execute.
As you all know Soorarai Pottru is a story set in 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 aircrafts 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!
Soorarai Pottru is a film very close to our hearts and we feel very passionately for this compelling and inspiring story. Unfortunately, the wait for the film’s release will now be a little longer than anticipated.
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.”
The makers meanwhile have decided a new video song online. titled ‘Aagasam’ is composed by GV Prakash and sung by Christin Jons and Govind Vasantha of ‘Thaikkudam Bridge’. ‘Neruppu Da’ fame Arunraja Kamaraja has penned the lyrics.
