All eyes are on Suriya's upcoming film Soorarai Pottru, directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad. Recently, the film's teaser released and won a lot of appreciation from fans and critics alike. The film is based on the life of Air Deccan founder GR Gopinath and the struggles he faced.

 
In a recent interview, director Sudha Kongara Prasad said that one cannot call Soorarai Pottru a biopic. "Yes, all the incidents in the film happened in Gopinath sir's life but one can't call it as a biopic," she said.
 
Sudha also added, "With Suriya, you don't have to explain his various looks in the film. All we have to do is to narrate him the story, he would come with the desired look on his own."
 
The Irudhi Suttru director also appreciated Suriya for bankrolling the film. "Suriya produced the film because he doesn't want some other producer to ask a series of questions to me on the budget. The per-day rent of a flight is 47 lakhs but no question asked on the sets," she stated.
