Actor Suriya, who won critical accliam from critics and audiences for his performance as advocate Chandru in his recent release ‘Jai Bhim’, announced on Monday that he will open a fixed deposit of Rs 10 lakh in the name of Parvati Ammal, whose life story inspired the plot of Suriya’s latest outing Jai Bhim.
‘The interest accured for the FD will be handed over to Parvati Ammal every month. It will be ensured that the amount goes to her children after her death,’ Suriya said.
It may be noted that the actor had earlier donated Rs one crore for the betterment of the Irula community.
‘Jai Bhim’ directed by T S Gnanavel is based on a pro-bono legal case fought by retired Madras High Court judge Justice K Chandru in 1993 when he was an advocate. Justice K Chandru has disposed of over 96,000 cases and is known for some of his landmark judgements.
