At a time when Suriya fans were eagerly waiting for the OTT release of ‘Soorarai Pottru’ on October 30, the actor, who is also the producer of the movie, has said the release would be delayed.
It is said that the makers of the movie are yet to get the NOC from the officials of Indian Air Force, since the film was shot in air bases.
Reports say Amazon Prime might even cancel the deal with the producers if they failed to get NOC from the officials at the earliest.
In a letter to his fans, Suriya said, “Unfortunately, the wait for the film’s release will now be a little longer than anticipated.”
He said that the film, set in the aviation industry, was yet to obtain all the required no objection certificates (NOC) from the Indian Airforce and that therefore its release had to be pushed.
“As you all know SP is a story set in aviation industry. So we had to deal with numerous procedures and permissions, because it’s a matter of national security and we were dealing with real Indian Airforce aircrafts and security. A few new NOCs are still pending for approval, and we understand the wait is inevitable as this adverse time is demanding more and more focus on the nation and its priorities, than anything else!” he added.
