Shankar is determined to finish Nanban in record time. The third schedule of the film commenced recently with important scenes being filmed in Sri Sairam Engineering College. Once this is done, the songs will be shot in foreign locations which Shankar has picked out himself as they are the trademark features of his films. London, Spain, and Andaman Islands have been decided on.
Harris Jayaraj is doing the music which is likely to be released in August so that Nanban can have a Diwali release. Shankar wants to stay true to the original version (3 Idiots) while deftly incorporating changes to suit the regional palate. It is definitely a film to watch out for.
