Leading Tamil actor, director and choreographer Raghava Lawrence has announced that he will build a new house for Parvathi, whose life story served as an inspiration for the recent hit film, Jai Bhim, starring Suriya in the lead role. The legal drama film directed by Tha. Sa. Gnanavel under Suriya and Jyotika's 2D Entertainment banner, tells the story of Sengani portrayed by Malayalam actress and Sivappu Manjal Pachai fame Lijomol Jose and Rtd. Justice K. Chandru played by Suriya, who fights for Rajakannu (K. Manikandan) belonging to the Irular tribe after he gets arrested under a false case.
In an official press note, Lawrence wrote, "I was deeply hurt after I found out about the life of Parvathi amma, wife of Rajakannu, who endured torture before being killed for a crime he did not commit." After coming to know about Parvathi facing poverty, he further stated, "I have made a promise and assured Parvathi amma that I will build her a house out of my own expenses." Congratulating the entire team of Jai Bhim, including producers Suriya and Jyotika and director Tha. Se. Gnanavel, Lawrence hailed the film as a "masterpiece" and cited that it has put the spotlight on a tragedy that happened 28 years back in Tamil Nadu. Below is his note:
Jai Bhim, which is set in 1995, is based on real life events and revolves around the arrest of three men from the Irula tribe in a theft case. A false case is framed against them by the police in order to solve pending cases, with the film also shedding spotlight on the brutality in custody, including the legal battle spearheaded by Justice Chandru. Praises continue to pour in for Jai Bhim on social media from personalities from all walks of life, including Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. K. Stalin.
