Ajay Devgn and Suriya shared the best actor award at the 68th National Film Awards. The best actor in the female category was won by Aparna Balamurali for ‘Soorarai Pottru.’
‘Soorarai Pottru’ is a dramatized portrayal of retired Army Captain GR Gopinath’s life as the founder of the low-cost airline Air Deccan. Despite having a straight OTT release, the film was a big success, with fans flooding Twitter with rave reviews. Suriya and Guneet Monga both co-produced the film. Akshay Kumar is currently filming for the Hindi remake of the Tamil film. The Hindi remake is being directed by Sudha Kongara and is backed by Suriya and Jyotika. The Hindi remake also stars Radhika Madan in the lead.
