On Thursday, Suriya's Soorarai Pottru team launched the single song Veyyon Silli composed by GV Prakash on mid-air with 70 students (first-time flyers)on Boeing 737 SpiceJet customized for the film. All the kids expressed their happiness and thanked the team for the kind gesture.
"Before 2000, only 1% of our population used flight transportation. It was GR Gopinath who made this airplane journey as an affordable mode of transport to Indian citizens by selling ticket prices for one rupee. He wrote a book called 'Simply Fly'. My director Sudha Kongara wrote this script based on the book and spent nearly ten years for the research work. I can say that this film is very important in my career. To select the first time flyers(mostly kids), we conducted an essay writing event for students in Government schools and asked them to express their dream to us, all the winners asked us to take their parents and grandparents, such a big heart they have. It was a memorable event", said Suriya.
Director Sudha Kongara said: "This world always try to push us down and crush our dreams. I came from a village and making this film with a big star. A lot of people tried to put me down but I aspired to become a filmmaker. This film will inspire everyone to dream big".
Produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment, Soorarai Pottru is scheduled to release on April 9.
