In what came as a huge disappointment to the fans of Suriya, his recent film Soorarai Pottru is out of the Oscars 2021 race as it failed to get nominated. Directed by Sudha Kongara, the film had a direct release on Amazon Prime as a Diwali special. Though the makers aimed for a theatrical release in summer 2020, it did not happen owing to the lockdown for the pandemic. However, it came as a piece of exciting news when the makers announced about entering the Oscars race.

But when the final list of nominees was announced today, the film did not make it to the race. Soorarai Pottru is based on the life of Air Deccan CEO Gopinath. It had a direct release on an OTT platform. It has also been co-produced by Suriya and Guneet Monga, and GV Prakash has composed music. Though the film had a direct OTT release, it was a huge success as fans flooded Twitter with positive reviews.

Meanwhile, Suriya is prepping to join the sets of his next film with director Pandiraj soon. He recently recovered from COVID 19 and reports suggest that the actor will get back to acting in the upcoming week. Tentatively titled as Suriya40, the film was recently launched with a formal pooja. It is expected that the makers will soon come up with some exciting announcements regarding the resumption of shooting. Other than this, Suriya also has a film with critically acclaimed director Vetrimaaran.
