Leading Tamil actor Suriya is set to keep his fans entertained in the days ahead as he will next be seen in the legal drama, Jai Bhim, scheduled for a direct OTT release on Amazon Prime Video on November 2. Suriya, who also has films like Sun Pictures' Etharkkum Thunindhavan, National Award-winning director's Vaadi Vaasal, including his production ventures Oh My Dog and a newly-announced film with director Bala under his 2D Entertainment, will be seen playing the role of a lawyer for the first time in his career in Jai Bhim, which has been inspired from real-life events based on advocate Chandru’s endeavour to bring justice to those who’ve been wronged. 

Speaking about Jai Bhim and playing a lawyer for the first time, Suriya said, "I got to meet Justice Chandru sir, much before the film through Tha. Se. Gnanavel. We were told he’s a disruptor, he's a change-maker and we had heard a lot of inspirational stories about him. We also got to know that he never charges any money for human rights cases." He adds, "Knowing Chandru sir more and reading about his books and him in his younger days, we all thought that his story has to reach every corner of the world. People like Justice Chandru sir are unsung heroes and we thought we must share his story and ignite young minds, and this case was a remarkable one. Another interesting fact about ‘Jai Bhim’ is that a High Court setting has not been done before, at least in the recent Tamil films. So, all of these things motivated me a lot to choose Jai Bhim as the project where I want to play a lawyer for the first time."

Jai Bhim's story is set on real life events in the 1990s in Tamil Nadu and is written and directed by Tha. Se. Gnanavel. Apart from Suriya, the film features Sillu Karupatti and Aelay fame Manikandan and Sivappu Manjal Pachai fame LijoMol Jose in the lead roles, with Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, Rajisha Vijayan, Manikandan, and others cast in pivotal roles. Produced by Suriya and Jyotika under their 2D Entertainment banner, Jai Bhim has music by Sean Roldan. The team behind this film also includes DOP SR Kadhir, Editor Philominraj, and Art Director Kadhir.
