Sudha Kongara’s film with Suriya, Soorarai Pottru, is loosely based on Captain GR Gopinath, who founded a low-cost airline. And to keep up with the theme of the film, the makers have planned to launch a single at Chennai airport tomorrow. Now, we’ve learnt that apart from industry celebs, the event will also be attended by a few kids, who’ll also get to fly for the first time in their lives.
A source says, “The theme of the film is about giving wings to dreams and narrates the story of a man who wanted to buy an airlines company. Keeping in line with the concept of the film, the makers have chosen 100 children from underprivileged background, who will attend the single launch. They will be taken for a short flight in and around Chennai, for about half-an-hour, along with Suriya and the rest of the team. This will be their first-ever flight experience. After that, the single, Veyyon Silli, will be released in their presence.”
