Director Suseenthiran finalized his film Eeswaran with actor Simbu during the lockdown. At a time when filmmakers were complaining about Simbu's non-co-operation, Suseenthiran did the unthinkable by completing a film with Simbu in just a matter of a few months. Eeswaran has released on Pongal in theatres and is expected to do well. In a statement, Suseenthiran assured that Eeswaran will set the box office on fire. He said, "Eeswaran was based on an incident in my life when an astrologer said my family will lose a person and the incidents that happened in my family after that. When I approached Simbu with a revenge story he was hesitant but immediately gave a nod for Eeswaran story. He believed it'll be a turning point in his career and we completed Eeswaran successfully because of his cooperation."
