Shankar had earlier said that he would not change Nanban script to the large extent. He hinted that he would make minor modifications to suit the taste of the Tamil audience. The fans were eagerly waiting to know whether the director would shoot a lip-lock scene between the lead stars or not, as 3 Idiots had a kissing scene in the climax. Speculations are rife that he has decided not to have a kissing scene between Vijay and Ileana D'Cruz.
Grapevine has it that Vijay will not kiss Ileana in Nanban. In 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor shared a passionate lip-lock. But the director will reportedly not shoot a smooching scene. It could pave the way for a controversy, as the Tamil audience are not used to such scenes. So, the Endhiran director has decided to do away with it, says a source. He might shoot a close-up shot, which would look like a lip-to-lip scene, concludes a source.
Meanwhile, Nanban unit is busy filming a song in Chennai. The makers are planning to wrap-up the movie by August. The movie, which also features Jeeva, Srikanth, Sathyaraj, Anuya, Lawrence Raghavendra, SJ Surya in the cast, is expected to hit the screens during Diwali.
