Suriya Thanks Fans For Their Overwhelming Support For Jai Bhim

Suriya's Jai Bhim, directed by TJ Gnanavel, was released on Amazon Prime Video on November 2 and received an overwhelming response. The film talks about the caste injustice and custodial torture meted out to the members of the Irular tribe. As reported earlier, Jai Bhim is based on true events. Initially, people from the North had a problem with a scene where Prakash Raj can be seen slapping a man for speaking in Hindi. Later, Vanniyar Sangam issued a legal notice to Suriya, Jyotika, TJ Gnanavel, and Amazon Prime Video for allegedly tarnishing the images of the Vanniyar community. They demanded an apology and Rs 5 crore in damages.

 
Suriya took to social media to break his silence regarding the issue. Suriya's fans and celebrities from the Tamil film industry expressed their solidarity with the Jai Bhim team. Earlier, in a response to PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss, Suriya said, "I'm only doing my part to make sure that the life of a fellow human is uplifted. I have support from people from all walks of life across the country. I don't have to defame anyone for mere advertisement. Let us fight in our paths for social equality and brotherhood."
