Sudha Kongara's Soorarai Pottru is loosely based on the events that led to the launch of Air Deccan. Suriya plays Maara, the screen version of Capt Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan. The film also stars Aparna Balamurali and Urvashi apart from Vivek Prasanna and Krishnakumar (KK), who played Seby and Che, Maara's friends. Well, fans were quick to take note of Che's performance. KK who played Chaitanya Rao aka Che is winning all hearts, especially those of women cinephiles. He plays the alpha male in the gang of three. His fit body, the twinkle in his eyes and the pilot's uniform impressed his lady fans and he had been getting queries of how he trained himself. For the unversed, KK is also a theater actor.
