Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru received a massive response from the audience despite its OTT release. The makers had to skip a theatrical release due to the pandemic but that did not hamper the success of the film. Seeing how amazing the response for the Tamil film was, Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Vikram Malhotra’s Abudantia Entertainment joined hands to produce the film in Hindi. The latest development suggests that Madras High Court has passed a stay order against the production of the film in Hindi.
