Suriya's Soorarai Pottru is being remade in Hindi and Sudha Kongara, who helmed the original version, will be directing the remake as well. Suriya is producing the Hindi remake under his production house 2D Entertainment. Soon after the official announcement, the makers faced a major hurdle when Soorarai Pottru's producer Guneet Monga's production house filed an injunction application at Madras High Court against the Hindi remake.

Now, the Madras High Court has heard the case and has ruled in favour of Suriya's 2D Entertainment. The court has vacated the injunction granted to Sikhya Entertainment and has ordered to resume the shoot of the Hindi remake.

Reportedly, Suriya's counsel argued that they have paid a huge amount to Sikhya Entertainment in facilitating the acquisition of rights of the book Simply Fly, on which Soorarai Pottru is based. Soorarai Pottru is a fictionalized account of the life of the retired Army Captain. G. R. Gopinath, who founded the low-cost airline, Air Deccan.

Soorarai Pottru is considered one of the best movies in Indian Cinema. The film was dubbed in Telugu as Aakasam Nee Haddu Raa and Soorarai Pottru in Malayalam and Kannada. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Soorarai Pottru was released directly on the OTT platform instead of a theatrical release. Despite that, Soorarai Pottru has created a rage as it received well acclaim from audiences and critics as well.
