Jai while speaking to the media said," After Venkat Prabhu and Sasikumar, A R Murugadoss has given me a good opportunity. A R Murugadoss phoned me one day and told me," My associate Saravanan is directing a film which I am producing. The story will be suitable for you. Are you willing to act?" I immediately rushed to meet him. The film is titled Engeyum Eppothum.
This film will get back my place which I lost. Engeyum Eppothum is a beautiful love story. Loving and being loved is happening every time. The film is about that love that happens in Engeyum Eppothum. Murugadoss said," It is a good thing to see that you and Saravanan are very close. It is like me and Surya being closer." Another day he said," I cannot blame you.
Some of the films you did changed you a lot. "The character in this film will change my career. I have rectified all the mistakes which I had committed earlier through this film. One may ask that what mistake I committed. I never expected that Subramaniapuram would be a great success. This film took me to great heights. But I did know what step I should take from that height.
The films which I did after this did not give me a helping hand. I cannot blame anyone. I knew that I had fallen into a pit and I can emerge out only by inch by inch. I was in a great depression. Only at that point of time Murugadoss offered me a role. This was a great consolation to me. Now everything good will happen. Now I will choose films very carefully. This blow is also good. This blow make me think to look before I leap."
