Mollywood actor Jayasurya has now come out in support of a transwoman from Kerala and has offered her financial assistance to support her business amid the pandemic. As reported by Mathrubhumi, the woman, who goes by the name Sajna, hails from Kochi and recently made it to the news when she and her Biryani shop was attacked by a mob in Irumbanam. The report further claims that Jayasurya is currently lending financial help to Sajna to revive her business.
The report further adds that Sajna had kickstarted her Biryani business to survive amid COVID season and had invested all her savings, which was reserved for her sex reassignment surgery. In her Biryani shop, Sajna has also employed three other transwomen, who were left jobless due to the unprecedented nationwide COVID-19 lockdown. However, even though her sales were shooting up, a few local vendors attacked Sajna and spread diatribe about her Biryani business. Due to the situation, more than 140 biryani packets were left unsold.
However, this is not the first time actor Jayasurya has offered help to the needy. Earlier in August, the actor helped Linu, a native of Beypore, who was living with his parents and siblings at the house, which was later destroyed in the rain. Mathrubhumi claims that the actor paid Rs 5,00,000 to Linu's parents.
