By Rinku Gupta
The release of Sudha Kongara's directorial Soorarai Pottru has been delayed from its Oct 30th release date on Amazon Prime.
Apparently, the makers are awaiting a No Objection Certificate ( NOC) from the Indian Air Force.
In a heartfelt note, Suriya explains the situation.
"Dear well withers, my fellow brothers & sisters.
lts not everyday I choose to share my thoughts with you in a letter. But in these unprecedented times, a situation has arisen where I stand before you with an open heart and a transparent mind. Because you have stood by me all the way to where I am now. and you deserve nothing but love, appreciation and truth.
When we started 'Sooraral Pottru ' we thought the only challenqes we would face will be shooting at never-before-shot-locations, working wih people of different languagesand bringing personnel with different skill sets to bring alive the magnificent world of Maara. Though easily said, it was a mammoth task to execute.
As you all know SP is a story set in aviation industry. So we had to deal with numerous procedures and pemissions, because it's a matter of national security and we were dealing wih real Indian Airforce aircrafts and security. A few new NOCs are sell pending for approval and we understand the wait is inevitable as this adverse time is demanding more and more focus on the nation and its priorities, than anything else!
Sorrarai Pottru is a film very close to our hearts and we feel very passionately for this compelling and inspiring story. Unfortunately, the wait for the film's release will now be a little longer than anticipated.
However what pains me is how eagerly my well-wishers were waiting for this but we seem to have no other option. I pononally hope that my well wishers will take this in good spirit, with love and faith.
While we get ready, I leave you here with this short peek into Maara's world. We will be back with the trailer and lots more soon!! This letter comes with a beautiful 'Friendship song ' which is dedicated to our friendship love, and affection.
Love and gratitude,
