New Delhi: Sony LIV has carved out a niche for itself through its rich Indian content and compelling Hindi and regional language narratives.

After introducing critically acclaimed originals in Tamil and Telugu, Sony LIV has now ventured into Malayalam with ‘Jai Mahendran’, an exciting political drama.

The show focuses on the life of Mahendran, a manipulative officer who believes in getting things done through powerplay and by use of his influence within the system. However, his freedom within the office comes to a halt and his ideologies get challenged, as he becomes the victim of the same power play.

In an attempt to safeguard his job and restore his reputation, he plans to sabotage an entire system to his advantage. Will Mahendran succeed in pulling off his master plan?

Saugata Mukherjee, Head of Content – Sony LIV said, “The joy of creating content for India is that it allows us to make shows in different Indian languages with a diverse set of storytellers. Each language helps us bridge cultures, understand different perspectives and build meaningful connections. With Jai Mahendran we continue our mission to diversify our content library. It also allows us to celebrate different cultures and unique voices. We are delighted that our journey with Malayalam Originals has begun and we hope we can keep telling inspiring stories.”

Rahul Riji Nair, creator added, “Our goal with Jai Mahendran is to provide a balanced portrayal of the life of an officer from various viewpoints. The system can be exceedingly complicated with various regulations and power-play at different levels. Through Jai Mahendran, we aspire to illuminate a topic that is both relatable and entertaining for the audience.”

‘Jai Mahendran’ is helmed by the National and State Award-winning filmmaker Rahul Riji Nair as Writer, Producer and Showrunner and the show is Directed by Srikanth Mohan.

The show features a stellar ensemble cast that includes Saiju Kurup, Suhasini, Miya, Suresh Krishna, Maniyanpilla Raju, Balachandran Chullikad, Vishnu Govindan, Sidhartha Siva, and Rahul Riji Nair in pivotal roles.
