Sudha Kongara Prasad, the director of the Tamil blockbuster Soorarai Pottru, has revealed that a Hindi adaptation of the biopic starring Akshay Kumar is in the works. She rose to international prominence as a result of the film, which is based on the story of GR Gopinath, an aviation pilot who aspired to make air travel accessible to the general public.
Writer Kongara Prasad was quoted as saying, “It is all discussion stage only. Only the producers are on board officially. I need to start writing the Hindi version.”
Telling the portal if she imagined that the film will be such a global impact, she said, “It’s all in God’s hands. I remember when it went to the OTT platform I wasn’t very happy. I wondered why it should go there. Then I saw the love it got and its massive reach, and I decided to shut up and let HIM do the rest.”
Meanwhile, one of the producers of Soorarai Pottru, Guneet Monga, has reportedly got a stay order from the Madras High Court against Suriya for allegedly selling the Hindi rights to Abundantia Films’ Vikram Malhotra without her agreement. This could cause the Hindi version of the film to be delayed.
