After the critical and comemrical hit that was Engaeyum Eppothum, Jai has been working with Simbu on Vettai Mannan. The two had also become good friends during the shoot.
However, STR had postponed the filming of that action entertainer to do Vaalu, a comedy with Santhanam for the same production house (Nic Arts). As if to make amends, now, Simbu has asked Jai to do a cameo in the film and the young actor readily agreed.
We hear that Jai’s portions will be shot in Chennai once Simbu finishes the long-pending Podaa Podi, which he is currently filming in Mumbai with Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar and Shobana.
Vaalu stars Hansika as the female lead and is directed by debutant Vijay Chander. The teaser trailer of the film has already created a buzz around the film, which is slated to release this Diwali.
