Wednesday 04th May 2022 09:15 EDT

Actor Suriya sought the blessings and support of his fans recently as the remake of his hit film ‘Soorarai Pottru’ went on the floor. The film will be bankrolled by his home production 2D Entertainment and will star Bollywood star Akshay Kumar in the lead. Sharing pictures with Akshay, Suriya tweeted, “A new beginning… need all your love and blessings!!”

Earlier in the day, Akshay had also announced the beginning of the filming of the project, which is yet to be titled. “With the auspicious coconut-breaking and a small prayer in our heart, we begin the filming of our yet untitled film which is about dreams and the power of it. In case you’ll have any title suggestions, do share and of course your best wishes,” he wrote on his Twitter page.

‘Soorarai Pottru’ director Sudha Kongara will also helm its Hindi remake. She had written the film based on Captain GR Gopinath’s fascinating entrepreneurial journey, who democratized air travel by introducing low-cost airline services.

The film was released directly on Amazon Prime Video in 2020 owing to the pandemic. The movie garnered unanimously positive responses from the critics and audience alike. The Hindi remake, however, will be a theatrical release.
