Actor Jai in recent times has been making news more for his involvement in controversies than his projects. His drunk driving incident resulted in cancelling of his driving license by the Chennai police. He was arrested for allegedly driving a car under the influence of alcohol and hitting a divider in Adyar in Chennai early on Thursday. He was later released on bail.
Later, producer Amma Creations T Siva openly expressed his displeasure as the actor did not attend any promotional activities of Venkat Prabhu’s Chennai-28 Part 2 at a press meet. He stated that Jai should not be behaving this way especially for Venkat Prabhu who has cast him in most of his films.
His releases in 2018 were Kalakalappu 2 and Jarugandi. The former did a decent business while the same cannot be said for the latter. There seems to be a lull in his career right now.
But in a recent press meet, the Engeyum Eppodhum actor had said that he will be playing a cameo in Venkat Prabhu’s directorial Maanadu which has Simbu as the hero. Jai is known to be one of the constants in Venkat Prabhu’s films and it comes as no surprise about his inclusion.
