Suriya’s Hindi version of Soorarai Pottru will begin filming shortly; the Madras High Court has lifted an injunction against the film.
Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru is getting a Hindi remake, and Sudha Kongara, who directed the original, will also be directing the remake. Suriya’s production company, 2D Entertainment, is developing the Hindi version. Soon after the formal announcement, the creators were hit with a huge setback when Soorarai Pottru’s producer Guneet Monga’s production firm filed an injunction suit against the Hindi adaptation in the Madras High Court.
The matter has now been heard by the Madras High Court, which has decided in favor of Suriya’s 2D Entertainment. The court has lifted the injunction against Sikhya Entertainment and ordered that filming on the Hindi remake proceed.
Suriya’s lawyers reportedly claimed that they paid a large sum to Sikhya Entertainment to facilitate the acquisition of the rights to the book Simply Fly, which Soorarai Pottru is based on. Soorarai Pottru is a dramatized depiction of the life of former Army Captain G. R. Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan, a low-cost carrier.
Soorarai Pottru is widely regarded as one of India’s greatest films. In Telugu, the film was titled Aakasam Nee Haddu Raa, and in Malayalam and Kannada, it was dubbed Soorarai Pottru. Because of the Covid-19 epidemic, Soorarai Pottru was distributed only on the OTT platform rather than in theatres. Despite this, Soorarai Pottru has caused a stir, receiving positive reviews from both crowds and critics.
