Sudha Kongara's Suriya-starrer Soorarai Pottru, which was premiered on Amazon Prime Video last year, was recently adjudged as the Best Feature Film at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2021. The star also walked away with the Best Actor award for the film. On Sunday, the production house of the project, 2D Entertainment, released a video in which Suriya and Jyotika were seen unboxing the award sent to them by the film festival crew.
Rajsekar Pandian, director of the production house, who was also seen in the video, posted, "Unboxing of the best film award for #SooraraiPottru from @IFFMelb. Thank you all for owning & celebrating #SooraraiPottru."

An excited Suriya proudly displayed the award and said, "For all the love and hard work, Soorarai Pottru team," amidst whistles and cheers from others gathered there. The other day, the actor took to Twitter to thank Amitabh Bachchan after the latter showered praises on the movie. Suriya said that he was touched by Big B's gesture and that words of appreciation and extraordinary moments like this are the greatest rewards for Soorarai Pottru. The legendary Bollywood actor had recently unveiled the curtain raiser of Parthiban's Iravin Nizhal as well.
The makers of Soorarai Pottru, which was the first OTT release of a leading Tamil star, had revealed sometime ago that the movie will be remade in Hindi soon. The movie, which was dubbed in Telugu as Akasam Nee Haddura, revolved around the story of Nedumaaran Rajangam aka Maara, who aspired to make the common man fly with the help of his friends and family. Loosely inspired by the real-life story of Air Deccan founder GR Gopinath, the movie hit headlines from the time of its announcement because of the innovative promotional strategies the makers came up with, to take the project to a wider audience.
