Soorarai Pottru loosely based on the life of Air Deccan CEO Gopinath was planned for a summer 2020 release. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the lockdown continuing the movie made it release on the OTT platform and was widely appreciated. Co-produced by Suriya and Guneet Monga, GV Prakash has composed music. Reports also suggest that the film has entered the 3rd round of Golden Globe Awards.
