Shankar has revealed the first look of his Nanban in today’s papers.It is a remake of Raju Hirani’s blockbuster 3 Idiots. The film stars Vijay, Jiiva, Srikanth, Satyaraj, SJ Suryah and Ileana.Nanban is Shankar’s first remake. However he was very particular that the look of the film should not be similar to 3 Idiots.
Instead of the famous three idiots sitting on a potty ad, Shankar’s three heroes are smiling with weird looking glasses and white lip gloss.
The only thing Shankar has taken from the original is the tag line: “All is well”.
Nanban has music by Harris Jayaraj and camera is by Manoj Paramahamsa. The film produced by Gemini Film Circuit is scheduled to release for Diwali 2011.
