On BookMyShow website, the advance booking for Singam 3 has been opened at various theatres in Thiruvanathapuram. Two premiere shows of S3 will start at 6:01 am on Thursday at Ariesplex SL Cinemas, followed by two other shows at 6:15 am on the same multiplex. The multiplex will offer a total of 15 shows on day 1.

However, not many have booked tickets for the movie at Kochi multiplexes. The movie might pick up momentum in Kochi if it opens to a good response. Nevertheless, the movie is expected to work well for the actor, as Suriya has a huge fan following in the state.
