Akshay Kumar’s failure as Samrat Prithiviraj doesn’t deter other filmmakers from giving him the chance to play real-life characters.
Akshay will soon be seen playing Simplifly Deccan founder G. R. Gopinath who incepted the budget airline for the common man.
The film in Tamil Soorarai Pottru was a big hit . The original director Sudha Kongra is now in the process of remaking the film in Hindi.
Recent reports have suggested that the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru is titled Startup.
Clearing the air once and for all, the director Sudha Kongra very clearly told me that the Hindi remake is NOT titled Startup, and that they are still searching for a title.
One also learns that the Hindi version with Akshay Kumar will be “notably” different from the Tamil version with Suriya in the lead.
