Sources say that Ileana D'Cruz refused to dance for the Tamil version of Bollwood hit song 'zoobbie doobbie...' Noted choreographer Farah Khan, who flew from Mumbai to Chennai on request of Shankar, was assigned to direct the song. However, when she asked the actress to participate in the rehearsal, Ileana complained of stomach ache.
Soon Farah Khan took her to a hospital, where the doctors said that Ileana D'Cruz is completely fine. After returning to the sets, the actress went to her vanity van and did not step out, which irked the choreographer. Hence, the song has been shot without her presence but it would only come to know when the songs of the film are released.
Nanban is a remake of Bollywood blockbuster 3 Idiots. The Tamil version features Vijay, Srikanth, Jeeva, Ileana and Sathyraj in the key roles.
