Supernatural experience leaves director Sundar C shaken
Says Sundar C, “My next film Aranmanai’s plot revolves around a family whose members have migrated to different parts of the country. When the family members return to sell their ancestral home, they realize that there is also a supernatural power residing in the structure. To shoot this film, we needed an ancient structure. Despite searching long and hard, we couldn’t find an ideal structure. So, we spent a sum of ` two crore to alter an already erected set in Hyderabad. We were shooting there when this strange incident happened.”
The incident in question occurred while filming a particular scene in which Sundar C was to ask a child interacting with the spirit as to who she was talking with.
“When I asked the child the question, she turned and stated her lines, which were ‘He is standing right here.’ I didn’t realize anything then. But later, when we were going through the silent track of the recorded portions, both editor Srikanth and I were rattled, for just as the child uttered these lines, we could hear someone breathing in the dark empty space. It has been recorded clearly and I have the tape and am ready to show it to anyone cares to watch it,” he signs off.
