‘Soorarai Potru’ was released on the OTT platform last year, which was also very much liked by the audience. Sudha will also write the screenplay for the Hindi version. There is a buzz that the makers are considering casting Bollywood’s A-list actor for the film’s central character Mara. This character was played by Suriya in the original film. The actors whose names are at the top for the Hindi remake include Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan. It is expected that the makers will soon finalize the deal with any one of these actors and the announcement will be made.
