This unexpected outbreak of Corona virus has affected the livelihood of a lot of people and there are no second thougths about it. The impact of the pandemic has been so bad in the media industry as well. Many producers and television channels have scrapped the production of their serials due to the financial issues. We had recently reported that the Sun TV serial, Azhagu has been dropped due to the pandemic. Following that, one more widely popular serial has also been stopped and it has come as a shocker for all the fans.

Aranmanai Kili, the Vijay TV serial has been stopped and going by the latest developments, it looks like the serial has been dropped indefinitely. This serial, which enjoys a huge fan base, is running since September 2018. Due to the pandemic, the shooting was stopped a few months back and now it looks like there are no plans to resume production, despite the Government granting the permission to do so.

Actress Monisha Arshak who plays the lead role in this serial, confirmed the news to the fans. Talking in an Instagram live session, Monisha said, "As far as what I know, AK (Aranmanai Kili) has been stopped. I'm in Kerala, my hero Darshan is in Bangalore and Pragathi ma'am is in Hyderabad. The three main leads of the serial are in three different places and we haven't been updated anything about the shoot yet. I guess they felt it is difficult to coordinate with everyone during this pandemic. Due to Covid, the project has been winded up. You won't see Jaanu character anymore."

This news has definitely made the fans sad who expressed their disappointment on social media. Monisha earned a huge fan following for her impressive performance as Jaanu in the serial. The serial's director Suresh Shanmugam also took to his social media page to share a very emotional note about this issue. He sounded completely down and it indeed looks like Aranmanai Kili has been stopped without a proper climax or an end.

Apart from the leads, the serial also starred Gayathri Yuvraaj, Santhosh, Gayathri Priya, 'Mynaa' Nandhini, Ashwin Karthik, and others. Aranmanai Kili was produced by TRM Sri Barati Associate. Check out director Suresh Shanmugam's social media post below:
