Apart from playing the lead role in Soorarai Pottru, Suriya also doubled up as a producer for the film. His timely decision to release the film on Amazon Prime Video ruffled a lot of feathers. However, it brought the film to a wider audience and as expected, the film received a glorious response from critics and audience alike. Recently, Suriya and Soorarai Pottru won big at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2021. Suriya and Jyotika recently unboxed the medal and goodies received from the members of the IFFM. Another feather in the cap was when Amitabh Bachchan praised Kayilae Agasasam song from Soorarai Pottru.
He wrote, "Times like these, kind words of appreciation like these, and extraordinary moments like these are the greatest rewards for Soorarai Pottru. So touched, means a lot sir @SrBachchan #SudhaKongara @gvprakash @singersaindhavi @YugabhaarathiYb @PrimeVideoIN #KaiyilaeAagasam (sic)." Amitabh wrote that the song moved him to tears. His blog post read, "The moment is heartbreaking in the film as can be seen in the video, but yesterday it was put in a different context... more real... and it has made it simply uncontrollable for me to stop the tears." The song is composed by GV Prakash
