Actor Jai and rumoured girlfriend Anjali will team up again for a film titled ‘Balloon‘ which is a horror-thriller. Written and directed by Sinish, ‘Balloon’ trailer was released by the makers and the visuals seem quite spooky and leave us asking for more. The couple, Jai and Anjali, move into a new house where they find something spooky and what is behind those horrifying activities is what seems to be the highlight of the film. The music of the film is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the film is being produced by Auraa Cinemas. Visuals in the trailer seem magnificent which is handled by R Saravanan and the editing is taken care of by Ruben. The trailer might leave us with a feeling of having watched the visuals earlier, but the balloon being carried by the ghost all around the home where Jai and Anjali live, seems to be the eye-catcher in the film. Besides Jai and Anjali, ‘Balloon also stars Janani Iyer in an important role which isn’t revealed much in the trailer of the film. Watch the trailer of ‘Balloon’ starring Jai, Anjali and Janani Iyer here:
Actor Yogi Babu plays a comic role in ‘Balloon’ and his one-liner about Bigg Boss and Oviya leaves the viewers in splits. With humour, horror and romance packaged in it, ‘Balloon’ will have the viewers’ attention and buzz would be pretty high. Anjali hasn’t had a release in a while now and the actress would have her hopes pinned on ‘Balloon’. Besides Balloon, Anjali has a Malayalam film too that she would be part of titled Rosapoo. The makers had released the teaser of Rosapoo recently and the film seems to be an interesting outing. Rosapoo is directed by Vinu Joseph and also stars Biju Menon, Neeraj Madhav, Soubin Shahir and Shilpa Manjunath.
Speaking to a leading daily, director Vinu said, “We wanted someone who would look the part as well as perform well; Anjali fit the bill. Her character is half Tamilian and half Kannadiga. She’s also bold and is as important as the male protagonist.” Rosapoo will also star Soubin Shahir and Dileesh Pothen in important roles in the film.
Director Vinu Joseph also adds that the film will have 143 characters and each of them will have their own prominence and will have dialogues. “We held auditions in Chennai, Kochi and Kozhikode, and also picked some from theatre. We took into account their background before casting them. For instance, for a Chennai-based Malayali character, we ensured that the person playing the role was from Chennai, to avoid any discrepancy in mannerisms, language or dressing style,” added Vinu.
On the other hand, actor Jai, besides Balloon, has ‘Party’ lined up for him which is directed by Venkat Prabhu. Jai and Venkat have made many films together which includes the acclaimed ‘Chennai 600028’ which was about street cricket and a colony. The makers of ‘Party’ had recently released the trailer of the film which promises to be a laugh riot. Besides Jai, ‘Party’ also stars Sathyaraj, Ramya Krishnan, Jayaram and Regina Cassandra in important roles.
Jai, recently, found himself under amidst a controversy after he was arrested by the Chennai police for driving under the influence of alcohol. The actor was also fined by the officials and recommended the transport authorities to cancel his driving license since that was the second incident of the actor being arrested under drunken driving.
Jai was involved in a similar incident in 2014 after he rammed into a divider. Police officials had recommended in their report to cancel the driving license of Jai after being involved in the same case twice. Jai has, however, not responded to any of the reports and has stayed away from the media. It was reported that Jai was partying with his friends at a popular star hotel till late in the night and decided to drive back himself along with actor-singer Premgi Amaren.
