Disney+ Hotstar’s recently released Tamil crime thriller Label presents viewers with an intriguing journey of one man’s fight for justice. Marking director Arunraja Kamaraj’s digital debut, the Hotstar Specials revolves around the two worlds of Madras. The first world, where one labels people with titles of criminal connotation for being born there, and the second, which guarantees people normalcy and respect. The series features celebrated actor Jai’s jaw-dropping performance as a lawyer aspiring to be a judge and Tanya Hope as a journalist. Available in Tamil, Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, with new episodes dropping every Friday, Label promises viewers a riveting story of being wronged and persevering in challenging the wrong.

Talking about stepping into the challenging role of a lawyer in Label, Jai said, “When I read the script for Label, I instantly knew Prabhakaran, my character, had fire in his heart. He is no ordinary lawyer; he does not just fight for justice, but he also points out how bias affects us every day. For this role, understanding the role of a lawyer in today’s world was hectic but a learning experience for me. I can now see why their lives are so incredibly tough. So, when deciding on the project, I knew it wasn’t just about playing a part; it was getting to live and experience a different side of life.”
