At a time when many are under the impression that Suriya’s upcoming film ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is a biopic on Air Deccan founder Captain G R Gopinath, it has now been clarified that the movie is no biopic.
“The film is not a biopic, but only inspired by certain events from Gopinath’s life. Director Sudha Kongara has added so many interesting imaginative events to the script,” sources say.
Confirming this, Suriya himself has clarified that the film is not a biopic, but will only present events that happened in Gopinath’s life, and the screenplay has been adapted suitably.
The film is jointly produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Sikhya Entertainment. The first look has Suriya wearing a dhoti and watching a flight in awe.
Sources had said while Suriya plays Gopinath, Aparna Balamurali, who was last seen opposite G V Prakash Kumar in Rajiv Menon-directed ‘Sarvam Thaala Mayam’, will essay the role of his wife Bhargavi Gopinath.
