The Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Soorarai Pottru starring Suriya, has been in the news for quite some time. Earlier, reports suggested that Bollywood’s top stars like Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham and Akshay Kumar were being considered to play the lead role. Eventually, Khiladi Kumar got the opportunity. After wrapping up the first schedule of Selfiee with Emraan Hashmi, Akshay has kicked off the remake shoot with Radhika Madan.
Akshay Kumar, Radhika Madan, and director Sudha Kongara Prasad were seen on the sets of the film for the mahurat shot. Sharing the video, the actor wrote, “With the auspicious coconut-breaking and a small prayer in our heart, we begin the filming of our yet untitled film which is about dreams and the power of it ???? In case you’ll have any title suggestions, do share and of course your best wishes.”
The Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru is likely to be set in a North India backdrop. Sudha Kongara Prasad, who helmed the original Tamil film, will also direct the Bollywood remake.
