A while ago, it was being speculated that Telugu veteran actor Mohan Babu would be seen playing a key role in Suriya's upcoming film Soorarai Pottru which will be directed by Sudha Kongara of Irudhi Suttru fame. However, there was no official confirmation on that. According to latest reports, it is official that Mohan Babu has been roped in for a key role in the film. Emerging reports reveal that Mohan Babu has officially been brought onboard this film and the actor has already begun shooting for his portions. The veteran would be seen playing a meaty role in Soorarai Pottru and will be his first Tamil film after a very long time. However, there is no confirmation if his role would be the antagonist or any other role.
Mohan Babu was last seen in Mahanati which was a biopic on legendary actress Savitri. Directed by Nag Ashwin, Mahanati had Keerthy Suresh in the titular role while Mohan Babu portrayed the role of iconic actor SV Ranga Rao. Although it was a brief role, Babu impressed with his portrayal and received great appreciation from audience and critics all around.
Speaking about the film, Soorarai Pottru is 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. Check out the first look of Soorarai Pottru here ICYMI...
Speaking about Suriya, the actor was last seen in the recently released NGK which was directed by Selvaraghavan. The film received mixed response from audience and couldn't succeed in impressing the audience and critics eventually turning out to be a dud. NGK was the first collaboration of Suriya and Selvaraghavan and fans had pinned high hopes on the film.
