One of the year's highly-anticipated films, Suriya's Soorarai Pottru, under Sudha Kongara's direction is gearing up for its release on Amazon Prime Video on October 30. Although a certain section of fans are disappointed that the film will not be making its way to theatres in view of the coronavirus pandemic crisis, many will finally get to watch it later this month, with promotions set to take flight soon in the next few days. Dubbed in Telugu as Aakaasam Nee Haddhu Ra, the film is carrying tremendous expectations, as composer G. V. Prakash Kumar last week revealed that the much-awaited Soorarai Pottru trailer will be releasing soon. 

With Soorarai Pottru only three weeks away from its release on Amazon Prime, it has now been revealed that Bigg Boss Tamil season 4 contestant Som Shekhar has a role in the film. A mixed martial artist, he had won the gold medal in the men's 66kg boxing match, including a silver medal in the Tamil Nadu state level Muaythai championships and is already a favorite among many who are watching the ongoing edition of Bigg Boss. Som Shekhar had posted pictures of himself as an Air Force officer in Soorarai Pottru on his Instagram page nearly a year back, which have now gone viral after his entry into the Bigg Boss Tamil season 4 house. Check out the pictures below:

A joint production venture of Suriya's 2D Entertainment and Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment, Soorarai Pottru said to be inspired from events of the life of Air Deccan founder G. R. Gopinath includes Aparna Balamurali playing the female lead, with Mohan Babu, Paresh Rawal among others in supporting roles. Fans have been extremely enthusiastic about the upcoming film right from the get go, with the response towards the teaser and the songs proving to be a strong testimony. So far, four songs from the film - 'Maara Theme', 'Veyyon Silli', 'Mannurunda Mela', and 'Kaattu Payale' - have been released to a stellar feedback from fans, who are now waiting for the three additional songs that are yet to be released. Fans are also waiting with bated breath for the Soorarai Pottru trailer, which is expected to drop in the next few days as they await to witness Suriya in a completely new dimension considering many after watching the teaser said the powerhouse performer in the actor was visible again.
