The audio launch of Eesan took place as planned at Sathyam Cinemas on November 19th, 2010 with the screening of two songs – a disco and a gana song as well as the trailer. It was earlier announced that Rama Narayanan, Bala and Ameer from the Tamil film industry, Telugu director Thiruvikram, Malayalam filmmaker Renjith, Kannada director Yograj Bhat and Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap would participate in this event.

All the directors, except Thiruvikram made it to the venue as his flight was delayed.

Speaking at this event, Yograj Bhatt said that he is happy to be a part of such an audio launch. Equating each of the directors present on the dais to that of the Indian cricketers, he said that Bala can be termed as Sachin Tendulkar in the film industry as he has proved to be an all rounder. Bhatt also compared other directors to Dravid, Dhoni etc. He likened himself to Harbhajan Singh which received applause from the audience.

Renjith said that the Malayalam film industry is studying the Tamil film industry and learning a lot from it.

Anurag Kashyap revealed that he requested a DVD of Subramaniapuram as he has drawn inspiration from that film. He added that directors like Sasi Kumar, Bala and Ameer impress him.

In an interesting development, Ameer had to persuade the legendary director K Balachander to come on stage. KB had extracted a promise from Sasi Kumar before arriving at the venue that he wanted to watch the audio launch from the audiences’ gallery, as going on stage makes him feel imprisoned. To this, Ameer said that promises are meant to be broken and had KB sir on the dais.

Talking about the latest trend in Kollywood films – kuthu songs – Ameer said that Bala and he did not want to glorify kuthu songs in their films but Sasi is including them for commercial success.

When his turn to take on the mike came, director K Balachandar said that Ameer has deceived him by having him break the promise. The director said that he is jealous of the current breed of directors when he thinks why such ideas, which are followed now, did not occur to him 10 years ago. KB said that many young directors ask to be trained under him for at least ten days but it should be the other way round as he has a lot to learn from the youngsters. He pointed out that he wants to compete with the current generation in filmmaking but age does not permit him anymore.
