Ace director Shankar is the latest to join the list of those showering praises on director Gnanavel’s critically acclaimed film ‘Jai Bhim’, featuring actors Suriya, Lijo Mol Jose and Manikandan in the lead.

Almost a month after the film’s release, the highly-rated Tamil director wrote on his Facebook page that ‘Jai Bhim’ had proved again that a powerful film could bring about enormous change.

Shankar, who has two ongoing projects — one with Ram Charan and the other with Kamal Haasan, said, “A voice for the voiceless. What a hard-hitting emotional rollercoaster. Director TJ Gnanavel’s detailing and realistic approach was nerve-racking and commendable.

“Beyond the film and acting, Suriya Sivakumar’s compassion towards society is really laudable, yet he livens up each scene with his subtlety and impact. Manikandan, Lijomol and all other cast and crew excelled. It has been proven again, that a powerful film can bring an enormous change,” the director said.

Coming out strongly in support of its member, actor and producer Suriya, the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce on Monday asked PMK leader and former Union minister Anbumani Ramadoss to refrain from criticising the actor over his film ‘Jai Bhim’.

In a letter to Ramadoss, South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce President Katragadda Prasad pointed out that Suriya had acceded to his request for removal of a symbol from the Tamil film ‘Jai Bhim’ that was recently released on an OTT platform.

“Respecting your feelings, our member Suriya immediately removed that symbol from the film,” Prasad said.

“The South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce is pained by the fact that your party cadres continue to criticise Suriya despite neither the hero of the film nor the production house having anything to do with the decision to use that symbol in the film,” the President of the Chamber said.

Pointing out that Suriya, who did not have any political, caste or religious affiliations, was a socially responsible philanthropist and was a beacon of hope in the field of education, especially to students on the fringes of society, Prasad urged Ramadoss to refrain from criticising the actor.
