It was a working birthday for Jai on Thursday (April 6) as he was shooting for his upcoming film Balloon in Kodaikanal.
But the team members, including the film’s heroine and his ‘close friend’ Anjali, had a surprise for him.
They arranged for a special cake, which was brought in by an helicam. Jai was surprised and was overwhelmed by the novel arrangement.
Key members of the team, including Anjali, fed him cake pieces and he was on cloud nine.
Nephew of music composer Deva, Jai had worked as a keyboardist in films and had made his acting debut in a supporting role in Bagavathi (2002).
In 2007, he successfully auditioned for a leading role in Venkat Prabhu’s sports film Chennai 600028. The film emerged as a cult classic, as did his next role of an unemployed 1980s Madurai lad in Sasikumar’s Subramaniapuram (2008).
Jai subsequently garnered praise for diverse roles, including a villager on holiday in Goa (2010), a timid working factory worker in Engaeyum Eppothum (2011) and a customer care executive in the romantic drama Raja Rani (2013), which became his biggest commercial success.
