One question that Jai's fans are asking on social media sites is whether he is observing Ramzan (Ramadan) fast. The Tamil actor's love towards Islam by now is well-known in the industry. After he was spotted last month at a mosque, people have come to a conclusion that he has converted to Islam. So, the question of fasting has been raised by many.
According to the Wikipedia, Ramadan is the ninth month of Islamic calendar and Muslims worldwide observe this as a month of fasting. A true follower of this religion will ensure to be on a fast unless he has some serious reasons to skip. Actor Jai, who has also found faith in Islam lately, is now reportedly on a fast, as per some reports.
Yes, Jai is fasting but he has not converted to Islam yet.

"I haven't converted to Islam. However, I have only started following the Islamic principles.
