The latest buzz in Kollywood is that directors Anjali Menon (of Bangalore Days fame) and Halitha Shameem (of Sillu Karupatti fame) are working on a script for Suriya and Jyotika to act together. If things progress positively, film buffs can get to see Suriya and Jyotika back as an on-screen couple.
Suriya and Jyotika, one of the most favourite real-life couples in Kollywood, had shared the screen space in a few films prior to their wedding. However, post-wedding, the couple did not get an opportunity to work together. In this regard, Suriya had recently said that though he would like to work with his wife and that they are waiting for the right script. He added that they would sign a film only if the script demands their presence in the star cast.
At present, Suriyaâ€™s fans are waiting for the release of his Soorarai Pottru on Amazon Prime on November 12. The film will be available in Tamil and Telugu. A Sudha Kongara directorial, Soorarai Pottru is produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment and co-produced by Guneet Monga of Sikhya Entertainment on a budget of Rs 15 crore.

Soorarai Pottru is based on the life of GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan and a retired Captain in the Indian Army. The film is also one of the only big-star releases that has openly embraced an OTT release. The decision to release the film on OTT prompted mixed response from those in the industry and fans. Exhibitors and distributors are not happy with the OTT release and have been demanding that the decision be revoked.
Besides this film, Suriya will also be seen in a cameo appearance in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, which has R Madhavan in the lead role.
