Sundar C has revealed in an interview with Kumudam magazine that Hansika’s character in Aranmanai will be that of a woman with paranormal powers. At the same time though, the director does add that there’s a “surprise element” to her role as well – and apparently, the actress wasn’t quite aware of it either, until he “sent her a surprise package and told her to keep it quiet”. Asked if he will be starring opposite Hansika, Sundar shot it down, saying, “Andrea and Hansika will play the lead…there’s something about Andrea’s face that I find mesmerising.”
Also, unlike other films, Aranmanai’s comedy track will continue unto the end of the movie – not surprising considering that’s Sundar C’s forte. “Santhanam provides comic relief and his routines are really funny – especially the one where he flirts with Hansika, without knowing that she’s a ghost – a pei”.
