Actor Raghava Lawrence offers financial assistance to Parvathy, whose life inspired Jai Bhim
Tamil star Suriya’s Jai Bhim was released on Amazon Prime in November 2021 and became a big hit. Directed by TJ Gnanavel, the courtroom drama was based on a case that was argued before Judge K Chandru, a former Madra High Court judge.
The incident happened in 1993 in which a man from the downtrodden Irular tribe was accused of forgery theft due to caste rivalry and died in police custody. The man who died was Rajakannu and his wife Parvathy Ammal fought for justice. Judge Chandu, then a lawyer and activist, took on the case and brought justice to the woman. This is one of the most important habeas corpus cases in the country. It was the longest Habeas Corpus trial in the history of the Madras High Court.
In the movie, Jai Bhim, Suriya played the role of Judge Chandru while Lijomol Jose portrayed the character of Parvathy.
The success of the film helped people all over the world to know about Parvathy’s poor financial situation and her struggle against caste oppression. Popular actor Raghava Lawrence was so moved after watching the film that he met Parvathy in December and promised to build a house for his family. Raghav offered to help after knowing that the family did not have their own home. However, the government of Tamil Nadu announced the same, after which Lawrence decided to donate the money allocated for their house, Rs 5 lakhs to Parvathy and her children.
Lawrence recently invited Parvathy and her family into his office. He gave her the money as promised. Now the photos have surfaced on the internet and fans are appreciative of Raghav’s kind gesture.
