Release[edit]

Soorarai Pottru was earlier scheduled to release on 20 December 2019, coinciding with Christmas,[70] but was pushed to the occasion of Thai Pongal, 15 January 2020.[71] Due to delay in post-production activities, the film was postponed to 9 April 2020, then to 1 May 2020, in order to avoid clashing with Master (2020).[72] However, the film's theatrical release was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[73][74] In an online interaction with his fans, Suriya said that he is eagerly waiting to catch the film on big screens.[75] On 5 June 2020, the film received U certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification.[76] Suriya's performance won praise from the officials of censor board.[77] The film's censor report was revealed on mid-August 2020.[78]

On 22 August 2020, coinciding with the occasion of Vinayaga Chathurthi, Suriya was confirmed that the film will be digitally premiered through Amazon Prime Video and the theatrical release was called off.[4][79] This came under a disappointing response from the actor's fans, who wanted to watch this film in theaters, and requested Suriya to reconsider his decision.[80] However, Suriya stated that he took his decision as a producer and not as an actor.[79] The actor faced a similar controversy when he released his film Ponmagal Vandhal (2020), starring Jyothika, in OTT platform, receiving backlash from theatre owners and exhibitors, for his decision.[81] Director Bharathiraja welcomed Suriya's move by releasing the film through OTT, stating that it is a right move for the current situation.[82]

Soorarai Pottru is scheduled to be streamed in Tamil and Telugu with the Telugu version titled as Aakasam Nee Haddhu Ra.[83] The makers of the film announced that the film will be dubbed in Kannada.[84] Rajasekar Pandian, the executive producer of 2D Entertainment stated that the film will be premiered across 200 countries.[85] Suriya further announced that 5 crore from the film's profit, will be donated to the film industry workers and frontline workers who made necessary efforts to control the pandemic.[86][79]

Marketing[edit]

As part of the film's promotional strategy, the production company announced that they will collaborate with SpiceJet as their official partner. The chairman of SpiceJet, Ajay Singh was launched his company's Boeing 737 plane with a poster from the film branded on it on 13 February 2020, the same day where the second single of the film was launched inside on the company's Boeing 737 plane during mid-air flight. This will be the third time a passenger jet had been wrapped for advertising an Indian film, after AirAsia India for Kabali (2016) and SpiceJet for Darbar (2020).[64][87]

The making of Soorarai Pottru was released on 14 April 2020, on the occasion of Tamil New Year's Day.[88] Suriya's dedication and hardworking for the film featured in the making video was appreciated by fans.[89]
