Suriya, whose last outings on the big screen was Selvaraghavan’s NGK and KV Anand’s Kaappaan, is currently busy with Soorarai Pottru, directed by Sudha Kongara. The latest is that the actor has rapped the ‘Maara Theme’ in the film, composed by music director GV Prakash. The composer tweeted, “Mr.Maara raps ... #maaratheme will be rapped by @Suriya_offl sir #sooraraipottru #sudha #arivu.”

Soorarai Pottru is said to be a film based on Air Deccan founder GR Gopinath. The biographical film, jointly produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Guneet Monga, boasts a stellar cast including Aparna Balamurali, Jackie Shroff, Karunas, Mohan Babu and Paresh Rawal in prominent roles.

Singing is relatively new for Suriya: he has sung only a couple of times before. The actor lent his voice to a coffee advertisement jingle a few years ago and also sung the Yuvan Shankar Raja-composed Ek Do Teen number in Anjaan.

Actors of Tamil cinema have often sung in their projects, in order to provide a novelty factor to the album. Actors Vijay and Dhanush are regular singers these days – the former’s last song was Verithanam from Bigil.
