The whole thing started when he was spotted at a mosque a few months back and since then he’s been under scrutiny regarding his mysterious transition from one faith to the other. And the actor didn’t make things easy on himself by being very tight lipped about the whole thing.
Yes, it’s understandable that your beliefs are your private concerns and you should not be forced to talk about it, but given the fact that you are in the spotlight anyways, it makes sense to lay to rest the doubts once and for all, yeah?
It seems Jai finally agrees and recently he spoke to the media about the whole thing.
“Yes, I’m following Islam and am observing the Ramadan fast. But no, I haven’t converted to Islam yet. I’m just a believer and this should be a good thing as I didn’t pray to any God for the past couple of years… now I do.” The actor clarified and added, “What baffles me why the media is so interested in my belief system, whatever it may be.”
Well Jai, all can we say except that the people are curious and therefore the media is too..
There were rumours that sprung up in between that should have provided many ideal moments for the actor to speak up – like when it was reported that he was converting to the faith for a girl – but Jai thought it best to maintain a dignified silence.
In any case, the Raja Rani star seems happy with his decisions and his professional life, and for good reason.
His last release Vadacurry has been received well by the fans, and he has multiple flicks in the works and on their way like Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah which will be a Ramzan release, Valiyavan, Arjunan Kadhali and Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum.
