The Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Soorarai Pottru starring Suriya, has been in the news for quite some time. Earlier, reports suggested that Bollywood’s top stars like Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham and Akshay Kumar were being considered to play the lead role.
Eventually, Khiladi Kumar got the opportunity. After wrapping up the first schedule of Selfiee with Emraan Hashmi, Akshay has kicked off the remake shoot with Radhika Madan.
Akshay Kumar, Radhika Madan, and director Sudha Kongara Prasad were seen on the sets of the film for the mahurat shot. Sharing the video, the actor wrote, “With the auspicious coconut-breaking and a small prayer in our heart, we begin the filming of our yet untitled film which is about dreams and the power of it ???? In case you’ll have any title suggestions, do share and of course your best wishes.”
Actor Suriya’s 2020 released film Soorarai Pottru was an instant hit when it arrived on Amazon Prime Video. It was sad that the Sudha Kongara directorial was not released in theatres due to COVID-19.
The superstar has films like Selfiee, Ram Setu, Raksah Bandhan, OMG 2 – Oh My God! and Prithviraj among others.
