Jeevan who entered the film industry with University had earned the wrath of audience especially women with his negative role in Kaakka Kaakka. In Thiruttu Payale, his character was a combination of villainy with heroism which was much appreciated. In Naan Avanillai also, his role followed a similar path but in Machakkaran with Kamna, it was a hard core role Thotta of a hero with good virtues. While talking about his recently released Thotta with Priyamani, the handsome actor says that she is a sweet girl to work with and if he receives offers to act with her, he has no qualms accepting the same but at the same time does not have any special interest in her. Reacting to an allegation that he recommends Priyamani for films, the actor denied the same and states that it is only the choice of the producer.
When questioned about his favorite actress, Jeevan says that he is keen to romance not one or two but eight heroines. Clearing the air about him featuring in Manmadha Leelai remake, he said that the film is Krishna Leelai produced by K Balachander for Kavithalaya.
