If the photographs showing him in a local mosque are any indication, Jai, one of the most sought after actor in Tamil film industry, too has reverted to Islam. Tamil music director Yuvan Shanker Raja and Tamil actress Monica are already in news after they declared that they have reverted to Islam.

Jai had earlier denied reports that he had been converted to Islam. A report published in The Times of India on Apr 19, 2014, said, "After composer Yuvan Shankar Raja admitted to embracing Islam on his social networking site, now, actor Jai is said to have been following the religion for quite sometime now. Rumours are rife that the actor has also converted to Islam. But when contacted, the actor denied converting to Islam."

"Jai has been following Islam for the past one year. He had even kept the fast during Ramzan last year. We don't know the actual reason behind his change of mind. All we know is that he has been following the religion and has not officially converted yet. And also, he has not changed his name", the TOI had reported quoting a source close to the famous actor.

Meanwhile, the actor also hinted about his affinity to Islam in his messenger site, where his status read 'Alhamdhulillah', which in turn sparked off the conversion rumours. However, when the TOI contacted the actor, he said, "I haven't converted to Islam", said the report.

But, speculations about Jai converting to Islam are once again rife after some news portals published photographs showing Jai, in white skull cap and shirt, offering prayers at Chenni T.Nagar Anjuman mosque with musician Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Soruces say that Jai who had acted in the film Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah that highlights the greatness of Hindu as well as Islamic rituals relating to wedding, seems to have inspired by Islamic religion while working on the film.
