If trade sources are to be believed, Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru is likely to hit the screens on December 20 for the Christmas weekend. Already, the actor’s NGK released this year and his magnum opus action thriller Kaappaan is scheduled to release on September 20. So according to sources, Suriya will have three releases this year.
Meanwhile, we all know that Sivakarthikeyan’s Hero is also scheduled to release on December 20. In Tamil Nadu, both Suriya and Sivakarthikeyan’s pull at the box office is almost equal so this Christmas weekend will be a close contest for both these stars.
Directed by Sudha Kongara, Soorarai Pottru is loosely based on the life story of Air Deccan founder GR Gopinath. Hero is said to be a racy action thriller which is being directed by Mithran of Irumbu Thirai fame.
