Jai’s horror film ‘Balloon’ is set to release later this month.

Tamil actor Jai's next major release is Balloon, a horror-thriller in which he's paired with his girlfriend Anjali. The film was finally wrapped up last month after being on the floors for a long time and is gearing up for release later this month.

In the film the character Jai plays, is rumoured to be possessed by the ghost of a clown who wants to avenge his death. As he awaits the release of Balloon, Jai has signed an untitled Tamil project with director Suresh. The film will feature three heroines - who are Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Catherine Tresa and Raai Laxmi.  

Speaking to Times of India, Suresh said, "The movie has Jai playing the lead. There are three heroines - Catherine Tresa, Raai Laxmi and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar. I will not reveal who plays Jai's pair, but all the three of them have very important parts to play. As for Jai, he plays an IT guy. It is a movie based on snakes, just like 1979 movie Neeya that had Kamal Hassan and Sripriya in the lead. We wanted to try something new and that's why we roped in these talented actors. We will begin shooting from January, depending on the dates of the actors. It'll be shot in Chennai, Madurai and Challakudi in Kerala. It'll have elements of love and thriller."

Interestingly, Jai just earlier this week completed shooting for Sundar C's Kalakalappu 2, which also stars Nikki Galrani and Catherine Tresa. The project was wrapped up in 25 days. Sundar C was supposed to work on his magnum opus Sangamithra, but he postponed it after Shruti Hassan, originally supposed to play the lead role, walked out of the film. Sangamithra had to be stalled until the makers found a replacement. Disha Patani has been officially signed to play the lead in the film, which will roll from April 2018.
