Recently, we saw Suriya starrer Soorarai Pottru completing the censor board process and getting 'U' certificate from them. While it made all fans of the super happy, the reports suggest that the film impressed the CBFC officials too. They loved the subject and execution of director Sudha Kongara and Suriya's performance blew their mind. In fact, soon after watching the film, the officials called the lead star and congratulated him for his impeccable performance. Well, this news has certainly raised our excitement and expectations for the film to the next level.
The film marks the first time collaboration of Suriya and Sudha Kongara. It was being speculated that Soorarai Pottru is a biopic on Captain GR Gopinath who found Air Deccan. However, Suriya clarified that the film is not a biopic on him but is only inspired by few events in his life. Tamil and Malayalam actress Aparna Balamurali has been signed on to play the leading lady in Soorarai Pottru. It is co-produced by Guneet Monga, who is known for bankrolling films like The Lunchbox, Masaan and Gangs of Wasseypur. Soorarai Pottru also features Mohan Babu in a key role.
The music of the film is composed by GV Prakash and will be his first-time collaboration with Suriya.

Taking to his Twitter page, the music composer revealed his excitement on associating with Suriya for a project. Speaking about the director Sudha Kongara, this film will be her third one as a director after Drohi and Irudhi Suttru. The latter was made as a bilingual in Tamil and Hindi with R Madhavan and Ritika Singh in lead roles. The film was later remade in Telugu with Venkatesh in lead role and Sudha herself directed it.
