Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru to be remade in Hindi
Suriya starrer ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is gearing up to hit screens in April. The film is co-written and directed by Sudha Kongara of ‘Irudhi Suttru’ fame. It is loosely based on the life of GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan, who is also a retired captain of the Indian army. In the film, Suriya plays the lead character named Nedumaaran Rajangam Maara, a common man hailing from a small town who dreams of owning an aircraft business.
Since the film has an universally appealing storyline, the film will be dubbed and released in Telugu and Kannada languages. Apart from that, a Hindi remake is also on cards. Guneet Monga, one of the producers of ‘Soorarai Pottru’, revealed this recently. However, the makers are yet to decide whether to retain the same cast and crew for the Hindi version.
It must be noted that director Sudha Kongara’s previous film ‘Irudhi Suttru’ was also released in Hindi as ‘Saala Khadoos’.
