Actor Suriya was recently spotted in Mumbai with his wife, actor Jyotika, and their two children and in one of the videos that is making rounds on social media, the 'Jai Bhim' actor is seen posing with his wife Jyothika for the photographers.

Suriya was recently seen in a cameo in Kamal Haasan’s Tamil film 'Vikram' in which he played a character called Rolex. He also played a small part in R Madhavan's 'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect' that released in July. Suriya will be making his entry into Hindi films as a producer.

His film 'Jai Bhim' received critical acclaim too. The Tamil-language period legal drama film directed by T. J. Gnanavel and produced by Jyothika and Suriya under 2D Entertainment.The film deals with the subject of police bias and state violence against a marginalised community. Based on a true incident in 1993, which involves a case fought by Justice K. Chandru, it revolves around the lives of Sengeni and Rajakannu, a couple from the Irular tribe.
