Director Shankar has shot few scenes on the lead pair. For one particular scene Vijay has taken 3 takes while Ileana has took nearly seven takes which has given some tension to director Shankar. The unit now moved to Andaman Islands and it is heard that the climax Shoot is progressing in a rapid pace. Though the film is the remake of Bollywood blockbuster hit 3 Idiots but Shankar has made enough changes to the script to match up the Tamil flavor.
Music by Harris Jayraj is almost on the heels of completion and music is going to be out in stores very soon. Gemini Film Circuit is producing the film while Sun Pictures owns the distribution rights.
Nanban features Vijay, Jeeva, Srikanth, Ileana, SJ Surya, Sathyaraj, Anuya and others.
