Born on April 6, 1984, Jai Sampath made his acting debut in Kollywood at a very young age. And at the age of 16, he made his film debut alongside Thalapathy Vijay. Although Jai played a supporting role in Bagavathi, his 2002 debut film, his casting resemblance to Vijay propelled him to
prominence. It was rumored that Jai will play a major role in his next film, which may have been a remake of the Tollywood film 6 Teenagers. However, that endeavor never really got going. In addition to cinema, Jai, the nephew of Devanesan Chokkalingam—also known
as Deva—had a preference for music. Jai Sampath, not Prithviraj Sukumaran, will share screen space with Mammootty, according to a new Madhura Raja poster.
Jai turned down several offers before he gave his first lead performance. Jai never wanted parts because he is the nephew of the composer of music Deva; instead, he wanted to work hard and earn his spot in the industry. So the handsome hunk made the decision to concentrate on
music, and he even started working as a pianist in films whose music was composed by Deva. After that, Jai won his first leadership position in 2007. Let’s take a look at these five Jai films on his birthday to see if they’re worth watching.
Born into a family of musicians, Jai has stated that music was close to his heart and that it influenced him in his “growing years”, particularly crediting his uncle, the composer Deva. He completed his schooling in Lamech School, Valasaravakkam, Chennai. He completed fifth grade in keyboard from Trinity College London and has said that he likes to be involved in the music compositions of his films. He has called himself a “huge fan” of Yuvan Shankar Raja’s work, saying that he has “often dreamt of surpassing his work as a composer someday”.
In an interview with Ananda Vikatan, he confirmed on the rumors about him embracing Islam, that he has been practicing Islam for seven years and thinking of changing his name to Ajeesh Jai in the future.
TOP FIVE HITS:
Due to the fact that Chennai 600028 was both Jai’s first main role in a film and Venkat Prabhu’s directorial debut, it was noteworthy. This film, which was based primarily on gully cricket, was a huge hit, and the actor-director team became well-known in Kollywood. After then, Jai and Venkat collaborated on a number more projects.
Another popular and financially successful movie with Jai, Vaibhav Reddy, and Premji Amaren in the key roles was Goa. For the third time, Jai and Venkat Prabhu collaborated on this film. Jai played the part of a young, disobedient boy who comes from a Tamil Nadu town and runs to Goa with his friends to wedding an American woman.
Jai had some professional ups and downs before Engaeyum Eppothum took place. When his films started to do poorly at the box office, M Saravanan’s 2011 Tamil debut film mission took place. In this film, which served as AR Murugadoss’s producing debut, Jai played the role of a shy professional from the working class.
Jai then appeared in Raja Rani, directed by Atlee, in which he played a supporting role. Jai made the decision to fill in all the blanks because he was moved by the movie’s ending and wanted people to remember his role.
Jai and Reba Monica Jarugandi, which stars John and Amit Tiwari, didn’t do as well as expected at the box office. It’s a unique film because it served as Jai’s singing debut. Seyiradha Senju Mudi was the song he had sung.
These are the five Jai Sampath films that you must watch.
