Soorarai Pottru, starring Suriya and directed by Sudha Kongara, has joined the Oscar race for this year in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and many other categories. Soorarai Pottru is based on the life of Captain Gopinath, who founded budget airline Air Deccan. Suriya plays the lead role in the film, also starring Aparna Balamurli and Paresh Rawal. On Republic Day, the film's co-producer Rajsekar Pandian took to Twitter to announce the big news about Soorarai Pottru entering the Oscar race.

Last year, after the nationwide lockdown was imposed in India due to the coronavirus pandemic, Suriya's Soorarai Pottru became the first Tamil film to release on an OTT platform. And for those who don't know, the Academy Awards organisers last year allowed the movies that skipped the big screen and premiered on any OTT platform to contend for Oscars 2021. Along with this, the organisers have made several other changes because to the pandemic, like extending the cut-off date for Oscar-eligible films from December 31, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The 93rd Academy Awards, which was about to take place on February 28, has been postponed to April 25.
In Soorarai Pottru, Nedumaran Rajangam (played by Suriya) fulfills his dream of starting a budget airline for people coming from all classes. This film premiered on Prime Video on November 12 last year.
