Jai and Anjali were rumoured to have been in a relationship from when they shared screenspace in Engeyum Eppothum.

Reports about Balloon co-stars Jai and Anjali seeing each other have been doing the rounds for many months now. Even as this rumour spread, neither Jai nor Anjali took the effort to clarify the matter and clear the air. However, Anjali used a recent opportunity to put the rumours to rest while talking to reporters. “We are just good friends. I’m really busy with my career at the moment and I don’t think I have the time to think about marriage. I’m busy shuttling between Chennai and Hyderabad for shoot and I’m really glad that I’ve completed a decade in the industry,” she said.

Anjali is proud of her career but she says it’s her dream to win a national award. “I have bagged a few awards including the state award in Telugu. But my aim is to win a national award and I’m working really hard and choosing the right scripts which would give me the scope,” she said. Her next Tamil release is Balloon, a horror-thriller in which she has shared screen space with Jai after Engeyum Eppothum. “Balloon is very different from Engeyum Eppothum. You’ll see Jai in a dual role and each one is very different,” she added.

On the career front, she has films such as Peranbu, Kanbathu Poi and Vijay Antony’s Kaali in her kitty. “I’m excited about each of these projects. I chose them because I have some value addition to make with respect to my role. I believe 2018 will be a very special year for me,” she said.
