Tamil film Soorarai Pottru will stream on Amazon Prime Video from November 12th and fans of actor Suriya Sivakumar are pretty excited about the film. The film releases in Telugu as Akasame Ne Haddura.
Directed by Sudha Kongaru, the Tamil language film is a fictionalised account of the life of Captain GR Gopinath, who founded the low-cost airline, Air Deccan.
Sooriya plays the role of Gopinath, real-life hero. That’s what Suriya calls him. “All of my earlier characters are reel. But this character is about a person who has lived his life, and is a very humble man. He is a real-life hero, who had a dream to make it big, and he did,” Suriya said.
“With all the complexities that are there in India, he had to overcome everything to be an airline owner and which is not an easy thing. He literally changed the face of India,” he added.
The film has Mohan Babu, Paresh Rawal and Aparna Balamurali in key roles.
