There’s good news for fans of Akshay Kumar and Suriya. The movie, Soorarai Pottru, is about to start production in Hindi with Akshay Kumar, Radhika Madan and Paresh Rawal. This is one movie the audience is waiting for, as Akshay Kumar hasn’t had a hit since Mission Mangal in 2019.
Suriya, who appeared in the original of Soorarai Pootru, gave the movie a major Twitter shout-out on Wednesday after Akshay Kumar revealed the release date of the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru on Tuesday. Akshay Kumar tweeted the date of the film’s release, posting, “We are ready for take off. Production No. 27 (Untitled) releases in theatres worldwide on 1st September 2023.”
Tagging Akshay Kumar, Radhika Madan and Paresh Rawal in the tweet, Suriya, on Wednesday, wished them luck and wrote: “Here’s to seeing Production No. 27 SOAR on September 1st 2023. Good Luck, Team.”
Suriya will also make a brief cameo in the Hindi version of Soorarai Pottru. Suriya shared a photo from the movie’s set on social media last year with the caption: “Akshay Kumar sir to see you as Vir was nostalgic! Sudha Kongara can see our story beautifully coming alive again. Enjoyed every minute with team Soorarai Pootru Hindi in a brief cameo.”
At the National Film Awards the previous year, Soorarai Pottru received a number of prizes. Suriya’s performance in the movie earned him the Best Actor award. Aparna Balamurali was awarded Best Actress for the movie.
Furthermore honoured were Soorarai Pottru for Best Feature Film, Best Writing, and Best Background Soundtrack. The film, which Sudha Kongara directed, was based on the life of Captain GR Gopinath, the founder of Simplify Deccan.
