Jai’s horror comedy thriller Balloon hit the screens on December 29, 2017, and is still running in a few theaters in Tamil Nadu. The film’s producers Nandakumar and Arun Balaji have now filed a complaint against Jai at the Tamil Film Producers Council.
According to the producers, they started Balloon in June 2016 and had plans to release the film in January 2017 but the lack of professionalism in Jai has caused twelve months delay. “He never came to the sets on time, had drinking issues and tortured us. At one point, our director Sinish was forced to commit suicide”, mentioned the producers in their complaint.
Balloon’s producers also said that Jai staged a drama by saying that the film’s heroine Anjali was admitted in a hospital because of serious epilepsy condition and left the shooting spot but later came to know that what Jai told them was a blatant lie.
The producers have said that Jai’s unprofessional behavior caused them 30 lakhs loss and they have enough proof. Nandakumar and Arun Balaji demand 1.5cr (including the interest ) from Jai and requested the council to not allow the actor to sign any new films.
