Hailing from the Aranaiyur village in the Sivagangai district, Seeman's father had been living there till his death today. 

Soon after the news of Seeman's father's death had come out, notable personalities, fans and followers paid their tributes to Seeman's father.

Seeman has always held high respect for both his father and mother. There are no words for me to comfort him at this moment. I pray that his father's soul rests in peace."

Seeman has been serving as the Chief Coordinator of the Naam Tamilar Katchi, with the political party contesting in the 2016 Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly election, 2019 general election and the recently-concluded 2021 TN Assembly elections.
