The 25-year-old Jai has now decided to try out different career options in the film industry.And will be the assistant director to Venkat Prabhu in the forthcoming flick Poochandi. It may be recalled that though he debuted with Bhagavathi, it was Venkat Prabhu’s Chennai – 28 that gave Jai the much-needed break.
Says the actor, “Venkat is the one person who knows me very well. It was he who brought out the acting talent in me. I am happy to work as an assistant director in his film, which has my good friends Premji and Shiva as lead.”
On the reason behind his decision, he says, “Though I come from a music family, I always wanted to become a director. So I feel that assisting Venkat would help me reach my target at least in the future.”
Happy about the response he is receiving for his last venture ‘Aval Peyar Thamizharasi’, Jai says, “My performance is being appreciated by one and all. My forthcoming films Arjunan Kadhali and Kanimozhi will also live up to the expectations.”
