The most awaited Suriya’s “Soorarai Pottru” film has been decided to get an online release by the makers of it. 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”.



We have first broke the news on Soorarai’s Pottru’s OTT release during mid April. 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.

On seeing this decision from the top-tier actor, among many fans, Nikilesh Surya who manages Rohini Silver screen in Chennai, posted a tweet trolling the actor and producer. “Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi.” he wrote in his tweet mocking Suriya for selling his film by accepting the money offered by Amazon. It is a name of a show that Surya hosted in Vijay Television as well.

Fans of the actor who are already in a disappointed state, flooded the comment section of his tweet for trolling their idol. Check out some of their reactions below :


However, Nikilesh Surya came up with an explanation saying that he too got disappointed on Suriya’s decision. He said that the money offered by a corporate like Amazon is hard to say “no”. He also hoped Vijay not to take such steps regarding his “Master” movie.

Here’s his tweet :

This decision from the actor makes history in the 89 year old Tamil cinema. As people would think twice to spend money to watch movies in theatres post lockdown, actor Surya who also produced the film, made this decision it seems. If a film like “Soorarai Pottru” which contains high profile names such as Surya and Sudha Kongara gets an online release, it would definitely change the fate of Tamil cinema, says Cinema experts.
