On Tuesday, as Suriya, who is the co-producer of Sarfira, unveiled the trailer on several platforms, he took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to dedicate it to Captain Gopinath who was the inspiration behind the film. He wrote in the caption, “This is our respect to @CaptGopinath sir, who inspired millions of Indians and thank you @akshaykumar sir for taking @Sudha_Kongara’s story across our country and beyond! Proudly presenting the trailer of #Sarfira”. Responding to it, Gopinath also shared his opinion on the trailer of the film, and said, “Thank you Suriya. What a hair rising trailer. Akshay will blaze a scorching new trail in the new Hindi original as you did in Tamil. As the poet said“Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,Or what's a heaven for?” Big salute to Sudha and Vikram and team”.


Post that, he also went on to pen different notes for the leading men of Sarfira and Soorarai Pottru – Akshay Kumar and Suriya. In one of the notes, addressing to the Tamil superstar-producer, he added, “Tk you Suriya. You raised the bar to impossible heights in Sorarai Potru tough to beat! And Akshay will blaze his own new trail to inspire the new gen. Big salute to Sudha Kongara, Vikram and team. What a show! “Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for”.


In another note to the Bollywood star, he wrote, “The euphoria for the launch trailer of Sirfira and the overwhelming viewership and buzz it has generated reminds me of Air Deccan launch with its 1 rupee tickets when website collapsed and people thought I was crazy.I was! @akshaykumar @Suriya_offl @Abundantia_Ent @Sudha_Kongara”.
