The trailer for Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Sarfira’ premiered on Tuesday, showcasing his portrayal of Veer Mhatre, a visionary determined to make air travel affordable for all Indians. The trailer blends drama and inspiration, highlighting Mhatre’s relentless quest to revolutionize the aviation industry and challenge the status quo.

The film is inspired by the life of G. R. Gopinath, the founder of the Indian low-cost airline Simplifly Deccan.

Gopinath served in the Indian Army as a captain and fought in the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971-1972. He co-founded Deccan Aviation, a charter helicopter service, with two friends from the Indian Air Force in 1997. In 2003, he founded Air Deccan, a low-cost airline that later merged with Kingfisher Airlines in 2007.

In the film, Akshay portrays G. R. Gopinath, a role originally played by Suriya in the Tamil film ‘Soorarai Pottru.’

The film reunites Akshay with senior actor Paresh Rawal, who plays the role of the owner of a premium aviation carrier.

The film also stars Radhika Madan, R. Sarath Kumar, and Seema Biswas.

Speaking about the film, Akshay shared: “This film is very close to my heart. ‘Sarfira’ is not just about reaching for the skies; it’s about breaking barriers, defying all odds, and believing in yourself when the world calls you crazy. This film, this role, is an opportunity of a lifetime for me, and I hope it inspires everyone who watches it to never give up on their dreams.”

The film is directed by Sudha Kongara, who is known for ‘Irudhi Suttru’ and the National Award-winning film ‘Soorarai Pottru’, which is the Tamil original for ‘Sarfira.’

Sudha Kongara shared, “‘Sarfira’ is a story that speaks to the dreamer in all of us. Working with such an incredible cast and bringing this inspiring story to life has been an incredible journey of a dream that I first saw in 2009. I hope the audience finds ‘Sarfira’ as motivating and uplifting as we did while making it.

Producer and actor Suriya added: “‘Safira’ is proof of the unfailing human spirit, which always triumphs in the end. I genuinely believe Sudha’s story will connect with the audience across the world, as it is a common man’s tale that will inspire us to follow our dreams. I’m glad that Jyotika and I could collaborate with Vikram and Akshay Sir and actors and technicians from the South and Hindi film industries. ‘Safira’ will definitely warm your hearts.”

Earlier Akshay Kumar unveiled the poster for his upcoming movie ‘Sarfira’ on Instagram, showcasing a rugged look with stubble and polygonal sunglasses as he gazes skyward with an aircraft reflected in his shades. The poster features the caption “Dream so big, they call you crazy.” Directed by Sudha Kongara, known for her National Award-winning film ‘Soorarai Pottru’, ‘Sarfira’ is a Hindi remake inspired by the life of G. R. Gopinath, founder of Simplifly Deccan. Set in the world of start-ups and aviation, the film also stars Paresh Rawal, Radhika Madan, and Seema Biswas in key roles.
