Director Suseenthiran recently screened his upcoming film, Jeeva to actor Vishnu Vishal, who dons the lead role in the flick. While talking to a Tamil weekly, Suseenthiran revealed that Vishnu was delighted after watching the film. “An emotional Vishnu told me that he was gratified, and was uncertain if he would bag another role like the one in Jeeva,” said Suseenthiran. Apparently, Vishnu’s father, Ramesh Kudawla phoned Suseenthiran to inform him that he hadn’t seen Vishnu so happy in his life.

Jeeva follows the life of a cricketer and the incidents that occur in his life during childhood. Suseenthiran added that he didn’t have to specially train Vishnu, for the actor is a cricketer in real life. He had even played the Ranji Trophy and Celebrity Cricket League.

The audio of Jeeva will be launched in the first week of September. Actress Sri Divya pairs opposite Vishnu and Imman has composed music.
