February 24, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Tamil actor Ajith Kumar, who spoke in his speech at the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s (CM) function mentioned how actors being forced to take part in social and political events, was supported by actor Jai. Jai had openly commented that Ajith made the speech at the right place or else the Chief Minister would still be unaware about such issues happening in film industry.
He has been supported by other celebrities of Kollywood. Superstar Rajinikanth gave a standing ovation for the actor’s bold speech.
Now, actors have started complaining that they’ve been compelled to take part in such events. It seems that actor Jai, who has been an ardent fan of Ajith Kumar, had a ligament tear. His doctor had advised him to take rest for at least a couple of weeks. But on the night prior to the CM’s function, Jai had received a call from the members of the Tamil Film Producers Council to dance for a song. Though the lad had explained his predicament to them, they weren’t ready to listen to his problems. Regrettably, with no options left, Jai was forced take part in the function. It is worth mentioning that he couldn’t even dance properly for a popular song and just jigged to some light steps and left the stage.
