Soorarai Pottru director Sudha Kongara pens letter of thanks !

  On the occasion of her film, the Suriya starrer, Soorarai Pottru bagging 5 prrstigious National Awards, director Sudha Kongara has penned a heartfelt letter of thanks, tracing her hor journey and everyone who was a pillar of support: The journey of this film started with my dad passing away. The last image of my father that I carry is of him gesturing to me from his bed to come to him as I stood in the doorway. I went back and added this as a scene in Soorarai Pottru. As film makers I guess most of us are finally just greedy voyeurs looking for those moments in our lives to put into our films.  Thank you dad for the many moments from our lives I’ve put into Soorarai Pottru. My only regret at this moment of winning the awards is you not being there to see it. Thank you to my guru. What am I Mani sir without all that you have taught me? A zero. Thank you Captain Gopinath and Surya. To you sirs … one for entrusting me with his life story and the other for living it on screen. Thank you
