Director Shankar is known as a person, who understands the pulse of the audience. He knows how to publicize his movies and when to feed the media with some piece of news. When people slowly start to forget or move away from his films, he hits the headlines to hold on his fans. Now, he is back with Nanban, a remake of Bollywood blockbuster 3 idiots, and has released its first look.
The promotional poster features Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth with zinc cream on their lips. The tag line 'all is well' and their looks give an insight about the care-a-damn attitude of the lead stars in Nanban. However, the movie produced by the Gemini Film Circuit has completed two schedules of the shooting.
Nanban also features Ileana D' Cruz, Sathyaraj, Anuya Bhagavath in the key roles. The movie is based on Chetan Bhagath's Five Point Someone, which was adapted for the screen by Rajkumar Hirani.
