Eeswaran audio launch: STR to join hands with Susienthiran again, actor announces three more projects
Helmed by Susienthiran, Eeswaran was announced and shot within 28 days during the lockdown, and is set to get a Pongal release
The audio launch of Silambarasan TR's Eeswaran happened on Saturday in Albert theatre, attended by fans and the press. The film, helmed by Susienthiran, was announced and shot within 28 days during the pandemic lockdown. It is set to get a Pongal release on January 14.
Though Eeswaran's composer Thaman could not make it to the audio launch, the principal cast of the film — Silambarasan, Niddhi Agerwal, Nandita Swetha, and Bharathiraja — were present. Despite being marketed as an event adhering to the social distancing protocols set by the government, none of it was followed by the organisers, who were barely able to control the frenzy of the fans.
Bharathiraja, who spoke first, called Simbu an 'arpudhamana paiyan'. "The stories I heard about Simbu and the man I met were completely different. He was extremely punctual and he doesn't hide anything from anyone."
A visibly excited Susienthiran stated that Simbu will become the most sought-after actor in India within two years. "His time has arrived. Fans can expect a film from him for every festival from now on."
Simbu, who spoke last at the event, started his speech by saying, "People are still confused about how I went through a transformation and how Eeswaran got made so quickly. Even I am clueless." The actor turned philosophical when talking about the bad phase in his career. "When there is chaos within, nothing can go right. I messed up in my career, gained weight, and got depressed because of the problems within my mind. I had to get rid of all that to find myself again."
Silambarasan surprised the audience by announcing that he will be working with Susienthiran on another film, which will be hitting the screens this Deepavali. The actor also added that he has signed three more films with different directors, apart from Maanaadu and Pathu Thalai, which are currently in production.
Simbu ended the Eeswaran audio launch with: "I guess I have spoken enough. Now it is time for me to get into action."
