Jiiva raked up a controversy by openly criticizing Simbu recently. Interfering in this issue, Jai has said that Jiiva is his friend and will take up what he has to say. He added that he knows Simbu since long and he is not a person who talks behind someone’s back. Jai clarifies that Simbu’s statements have been misquoted by someone and angry over such statements, Jiiva had spoken badly about Simbu in a press conference.
Jiiva could have clarified this with Simbu instead of taking the issue publicly. Being in a film industry that is known for some great friendships – like Rajini and Kamal – it is indeed sad that such a situation has arisen, he added.
