It was director-actor Raghava Lawrence's Kanchana that started the trend of horror-comedy films in Kollywood. Even after a decade, there seems to be at least one horror comedy film releasing in theatres or OTT. After Kanchanai, director Sundar C's Aranmanai is one of the most successful horror-comedy franchises in Kollywood. Aranmanai 1 and Aranmanai 2 have been blockbusters in theatres which pushed director Sundar C to come up with the third film in the franchise. He roped in actors Arya, Raashi Khanna, Sakshi Agarwal, and Andrea Jeremiah in lead roles along with several comedy actors.
Aranmanai 3's shooting was wrapped up long ago and the makers decided to wait for a year for theatres to open up. The film will release in theatres on October 14. Ahead of the film's release, director Sundar C revealed that Aranmanai 3 will be different from its prequels. He said that Aranmanai and Aranmanai 2 were shot in sets while the third part was shot in a real palace. Reportedly, the entire team shot the palace portions for 40 days which will be the highlight of the film. He also assured me that the computer graphics will be even perfect this time. He said that his aim was to make the audience happy and promised that Aranmanai 2 will do that.
