The controversy over Telugu star Surya's film 'Jai Bhim' is growing. A leader of the political party Pattali Makkal Kochi (PMK) had announced to give Rs 1 lakh cash to the person who attacked Surya. Since then, the Tamil Nadu police have been in action. Security at the actor's home has been beefed up. Police have lodged a complaint against the leader. The controversy over the film 'Jai Bhim' is due to the character of the Vaniyar community. The film has been acclaimed by fans and critics alike. On the other hand, even after the controversy, the industry has supported the filmmakers and Surya.

फिल्में समाज का आईना होती हैं और उसी फिल्म को देखकर समाज में बदलाव भी आता है। अब तक जितनी रोमांटिक, ड्रामा, राबिनहुड वाली फिल्में बनी, लोगों ने उनसे वहीं सीखा। लेकिन 'जय भीम' जैसी वास्तविक घटना पर आधारित फिल्म से लोगों ने हक, अधिकार, न्याय के लिए लड़ना सीखा। #JaiBhim @Suriya_offl pic.twitter.com/2ewhvhz90S— Tribal Army (@TribalArmy) November 17, 2021
