Surya spread positive vibes to the audience on Vinayagar Chaturthi by extending his warm wishes to all his fans on social media. He then shared a piece of drastic news about Soorarai Pottru’s release on OTT platforms. Earlier it was slated to be released on April 9 by this year.
Due to the continuous lockdown and the shutdown of cinema theatres this new plan of releasing the movie directly on Amazon prime on October 30 has been implemented. Soorarai Pottru was directed by Sudha Kongara and the film was inspired by the life of Captain G.R.Gopinath, who founded the low-cost airline Air Deccan. This movie has a separate fan base for a classy sound and creative visuals on it. Moviegoers and fans tweeted back to Surya about his decision.
As a huge and grand film like this has to be experienced in theatres and feel the real joy of happiness not in OTT’s. Fans were very much disappointed and asked him to reconsider his decision. Even Hari the successful director of Singam movie which has been the highest relevancy over the years from 2010 till 2017 asked Surya not to release the movie on OTT. Surya’s fan and many successful people in the industry opposed his decision.
Will, the decision of Surya will be reconsidered or not is the biggest doubt for the audience? Let us all wait and pray for a positive response.
