Will makers re-release Gunaa in the theatres?

According to the industry tracker Christopher Kanagaraj, the director of Gunaa, Santhana Bharathi said that they are looking for film rights. "We are looking for #Guna Re-Release in Theatres. Not sure who holds the film rights. We are trying to get it done soon," he said.

For the unversed, Gunaa was inspired by a cursed cave then known as Devil's Kitchen. However, after the release of the movie, the cave is now widely known as Guna Caves and has become one of the popular tourist spots. The movie was about a neurodivergent individual (played by Kamal Haasan) and his love for Roshini, whom he assumed to be an avatar of the goddess Abhirami.
