Helmed by director Sudha Kongara, known for films like Saala Khadoos (2016) and Guru (2017). In Suriya’s voiceover, it is described how he was labeled as a “crazy” person when he decided to leave home with just Rs 6000 and start his own airline.
He plays an air force officer named Nedumaaran Rajangam, who overcomes failures and ridicule to achieve his dream.
The protagonist also has a terrible temper, as seen in the teaser, where he almost strangles a government office

The film is based on the life of Air Deccan founder Captain GR Gopinath. Jackie Shroff, Karunas, Paresh Rawal and Mohan Babu will also be seen in pivotal roles.
On the work front, Suriya’s last two releases, Selvaraghavan’s NGK and KV Anand’s Kaappaan, did not fare well at the box-office. He also has a film with Viswasam fame director Siruthai Siva in the pipeline, which is scheduled to take off next year and will be produced by Studio Green.
Soorarai Pottru is expected to hit the theatres this summer.
