A joyous Suriya on the CM’s review replied that he is speechless by the heartfelt appreciation of MK Stalin and his appreciation has fulfilled the purpose of making the movie. Suriya, born as Saravanan Sivakumar had earlier called the movie ‘special’ and hoped the whole county can connect to it.
The movie is written and directed by TJ Gnanavel, a former journalist and activist who also helped Suriya set up Agaram Foundation 15 years ago. The film also stars Rajisha Vijayan and Prakash Raj among others.
For more than two decades in the industry, Suriya has played everything from a loveable con man in Pithamagan (2003) to a man suffering from anterograde amnesia in Ghajini. Before becoming a firebrand advocate for Jia Bhim he was the lead actor of the Singam trilogy a freewheeling policeman who can bend the rules of the system to get justice.
