Jai Courtney to Star in a New Film
A new film starring actor Jai is in the works. The film will be directed by Saravana Rajan who also directed the hit Vada Curry. While Jai will be playing the role of an IT specialist, Athulya Ravi will play the role of her love interest. The music of the film will be composed by Sam C.S. The film will also feature Aathmika and Arvind Swamy.
Jai has appeared in various films and television shows in Tamil cinema. He first made his acting debut in the 2002 Tamil film Bhagavathi. His similar looks led the director to cast him in the film. Jai was also slated to appear in the lead role of the remake of 6 Teens, but the film never got released. He was also expected to star in other films such as Velmurugan’s Ammu and Nambiraj’s Touch.
Despite its name, Jai’s film is based on true events and characters. The story revolves around the Jadhav family in Kenya. Jai Mehta, the son of Hansal Mehta, is directing the film. Other leading stars of the film include Vivek Gomber, Rajat Kapoor, Amruta Khanvilkar, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and Preetik Chawla.
The release date of Jai’s upcoming film has not been announced yet. However, the makers have released a poster and social media users have been expressing their excitement. Fans are confident that the comeback film will do well at the box office. Jai’s new film, Shiva Shivaa, will be a mass action entertainer that will appeal to all age groups. Susienthiran’s previous venture, Eeswaran, failed to please the audience due to its lackluster reviews and Simbu fans.
Another film starring Jai is Sundar C’s rom-com, Coffee With Kadhal. The film is based on the true story of three brothers who get involved in a love triangle. Jai Courtney has also been signed on to narrate the new series “For the Love of Pets,” a factual show on animal welfare in Australia, commissioned by 9Network Australia. The series follows both the animals and the staff of various animal shelters.
Meanwhile, Wong Jing, the director of KING OF DRUG DEALERS (JUI LUNG), has reportedly announced that the film will cost 200 million RMB. Chi Tan and Wa Jai were paid top salaries for their roles. In addition, Wong Jing revealed that the film will use actual locations such as the Kowloon Walled City and Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park. The film also revealed that he asked Philip Ng Won Lung to appear as a guest star in the film.
Gatt also has several projects in the works. His penultimate short film, My Beautiful White Skin, tackled the skin lightening issue among the British Asian diaspora. The film starred Ritu Arya and featured BAFTA nominee Sope Dirisu.
