Suriya also mentioned that he felt privileged to be a part of such a great movie, which portrays reality. “Tamil movies are all about the portrayal of reality and the lives of people around us. I find myself lucky to take this project,” the ‘Ghajini’ actor replied, on being quizzed about the realistic approach in Tamil movies.

Suriya explained, “This movie is all about the political injustice and Dalits being a soft target for the police. A journey of a lawyer, who is determined to bring justice to a lower caste woman, who is deprived of her basic rights. He used the law as his weapon”. “These incidents happen every day in all parts of India. So, a hero like an advocate Chandru, and his tale need to be amplified, so as to make everyone realize the power of law,” Suriya said.

On being quizzed about the OTT release of his movies, Suriya answered, “This is an era of a digital revolution. Though we all miss the theatrical releases, ‘Jai Bhim’ has got such a big release in India and across 240 countries and territories. So, considering the reach, I think it is not at all a small thing”. Advocate Chandru fights for righteousness and struggles to achieve equality.
