Mohan Babu said to have bagged a crucial role in hero Suriya's next film Soorarai Pottru. Touted to be a biographical film, the film is being directed by Sudha Kongara, of Guru fame.
The movie is based on the life of Air Deccan founder Captain GR Gopinath. Suriya will be seen as Captain GR Gopinath in the film while Mohan Babu has been cast for an important role. Mohan Babu is joining the film's shoot from 14th June in Chennai. The film's shoot is progressing at brisk pace.
Suriya's home production 2D Entertainment itself is bankrolling the film. Since Sudha hails from Vizag, it is buzzed that the Soorarai Pottru would also be dubbed and released in Telugu. However, after series of debacles including the latest NGK, Suriya's Telugu market has hit rock bottom. So, one has to wait for an official confirmation on Telugu release.
