Shankar is back in Chennai after a grueling but satisfactory shooting schedule of his upcoming film ‘Nanban’ in the ever-green hill-station of Dehra Dun, which is nestled in the mountain ranges of the Himalayas in the State of Uttarakhand.
The mercurial director, whose last film ‘Enthiran: The Robot’ was a phenomenal hit and created waves world-wide, is upbeat about the prospects of ‘Nanban’ at the box-office. He’s all praise for the combo of Vijay, Jiiva and Srikkanth and says that the trio has become thick friends, not merely for their on-screen roles but off it as well.
Meanwhile, reports said that Vijay was very ‘apprehensive’ in changing his hair-style for his role in the film. Shankar scotches those reports as nothing but a figment of somebody’s imagination. He has confirmed that Vijay would actually be sporting a beard for his role when shown in the ‘flashback mode’ in the film.
A bearded Vijay, fresh Ileana and the untested trio of Vijay-Jiiva-Srikkanth… looks like ‘Nanban’ has a lot to look forward to!
