The fans are sharing their condolence messages on social media and we at Galatta Media also express our heartfelt condolences to Susienthiran and family. Let us pray for the departed soul to rest in peace.

Susienthiran, on the professional front, should be quite a happy man since his latest release Eeswaran is running successfully in the theatres. Eeswaran, which has come as Silambarasan TR's comeback film, got released on Pongal day, opening to packed houses. Considering the festive weekend and good reports from the family audience, the film is expected to do well at the box office. Everyone is raving about Simbu’s complete energy and performance in the film. It looks like Simbu has arrived in style with a bang and Eeswaran has turned out to be a good outing for him.

Eeswaran is directed by Susienthiran and produced by Balaji Kappa under the banner of Madhav Media. The film’s music is scored by S Thaman, while the cinematography and editing departments are handled by Tirru and Anthony respectively.

The same combination of Simbu and Susienthiran will be teaming up once again for a new film which is expected to go on floors in the next few months. The film is tentatively planned to release for this year’s Diwali. Susienthiran has also already completed shooting a film with Jai, titled Shiva Shivaa, which marks Jai’s debut as a music director. Susienthiran’s coming days, on the professional front, looks promising and busy.
