Tamil nadu theatre association head Tirupur Subramaniam has condemned actor Suriya by saying that he is kicking the ladder by using which he climbed the height he is today. Announcing about it in his official twitter account, actor Suriya who also produced the movie, stated that the COVID 19 pandemic is the main reason behind his decision. The actor also pledged that he will complete acting in at least two films before the pandemic ends and will make people happy by releasing them in theatre. He also announced that he will be donating Rs.5 Crore to the people who are fighting against COVID 19 from the money he got for releasing “Soorarai Pottru” in “Amazon Prime”.

The film which is believed to be a biographical picture of Air Deccan founder G.R Gopinath, is touted to be a coming of age biographical drama. Directed by Sudha Kongara, the film has G.V Prakash as musician. It is notable that Gopinath is a retired Captain of the Indian Army, an author, and also a politician. As Suriya gave his word to provide Rs. 5 crore to the public people, people working in film industry and to the frontline workers, people wondered how much he could have got from Amazon for selling the movie.
