Suriya in Jai Bhim
Jai Bhim, which was released two years ago, received rave responses from critics and the audience. The Suriya-starrer went on to become one of the important films in the history of Tamil cinema, thanks to the sensitivity with which a pertinent topic was handled by director TJ Gnanavel.
The actor's performance, along with impressive portrayals by Manikandan, Lijomol Jose, Prakash Raj, Thamizh and Rao Ramesh garnered unanimous positive responses from cinephiles. It had a direct release on Amazon Prime and was bankrolled by Suriya's 2D Entertainment.
Suriya pens a heartfelt note to express gratitude
The actor has taken to his Twitter page to pen an emotional note on the occasion of the movie having completed two years today. He has expressed happiness for all the support and love he and his team have been receiving ever since its release. He also thanked those who stood by the makers to bring this epic drama on screen.
Further, he thanked the Government of Tamil Nadu for initiating measures to enhance the lives of a tribal community based on whose life the film is about. The makers have unveiled a making video today to celebrate the occasion.
Suriya's Kanguva to arrive as a summer release?
The actor's next outing is the much-expected Kanguva, which has Siva at the helm. The big-budget period drama will be available in 10 languages and is likely to be a summer release. Suriya is expected to join Vaadi Vaasal, another hyped project which has Vetri Maaran directing it.
His last release was Lokesh Kanagaraj's Vikram in which he played a cameo. His previous outing in a lead role was Pandiraj's Etharkkum Thunindhavan.
