Chennai, June 20 (IANS) Actress Aparna Balamurali, who played the female lead opposite actor Suriya in director Sudha Kongara's Tamil blockbuster 'Soorarai Pottru', is overwhelmed at having met Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who is now playing the lead in the Hindi version of the film.
Taking to Twitter, Aparna said, "The feeling was overwhelming. Thank you Akshay Kumar sir for your time. For being such a joy!! It was a pleasure to see you become Veer.
"Forever grateful to my Sudha Kongara ma'am for everything. Missed meeting you Radhika Madan! Can't wait to see your magic on screen!"
Radhika Madan reprises Aparna's role in the Hindi remake. Only last week Suriya had disclosed that he had called on the crew of the Hindi remake of 'Soorarai Pottru', which was partly inspired by events from the life of Air Deccan founder Captain G.R. Gopinath, and that he was playing a cameo in the Hindi version.
The Hindi version is being produced by Suriya's production house 2D Entertainment, along with Abudantia Entertainment and Cape Good Films on a lavish scale.
2D Entertainment will be making its debut in Hindi film production with this film.
