    Taking to Instagram, Esha posted pictures from the films Yuva and Aayutha Ezhuthu. Expressing gratitude to director Mani Ratnam, Esha captioned the post “20 years of Yuva & Aayutha Ezhuthu. Mani sir you are magic. Working with you on both the films in Tamil & Hindi was an absolute pleasure, a dream come true & extremely satisfying as an artist to have you direct me.”

    In the caption, Esha also shared quirky snippets from both the film shoots with co-stars Ajay and Suriya. She wrote, “Both my co stars @ajaydevgn & @actorsuriya were just perfect & wonderful to work with. I remember this was the first time I worked with AJ (Ajay) and how mani sir & I would talk to each other in Tamil all the time while discussing the scenes which left Ajay wondering what on earth was being said. Suriya I remember as a man of few words but once the cameras rolled we both were totally on fire in character full of life.”

    The third picture Esha posted was from the premiere of Yuva at IIFA in Singapore, and the actress wrote that she was really proud of being part of such fantastic films.
