Actor Suriya's much-beloved "Jai Bhim' has earned yet another notable honour, in the form of a clip from the movie being posted on the YouTube channel of Oscars, the official channel of the Academy Awards.

In the description to the almost 13-minute clip, the Academy Awards team had captioned "Jai Bhim weaves in real case studies helmed by Activist-Lawyer Chandru, who brought justice to indigenous tribes in Tamilnadu through his relentless efforts. Writer-director TJ Gnanavel reveals how the story narrative was formed and executed."

This is the not the first international honour the movie, directed by T.J. Gnanavel and produced by Suriya and Jyothika under their banner 2D Entertainment, has received.

Last November, the movie overtook classics like The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather to secure the top spot as the highest rated movie (9.6) in the IMDB online database.

Months after its release on the Amazon Prime OTT platform, the movie still holds a respectable 9.3 rating.

"Jai Bhim" is based on real-life events of a 1993 case fought by Justice K. Chandru, and depicts the horrors of injustice towards the marginalised community. Suriya, who portrays K Chandru, assists a tribal woman whose husband was wrongfully detained and abused by the police.

The film has Lijomol Jose, Manikandan and Suriya as the main leads supported by Tamizh, Guru Somasundaram, Rajisha Vijayan, Kumaravel, Prakash Raj, Ilavarasu and others.
