Soon after returning from Swiss, Jiiva flew down to Coimbatore to participate in the Nanban shooting. Director Shanakar and team are stationed in Coimbatore where some very important scenes are being canned.
Jiiva, who was busy wrapping up Vandhan Vendran, has joined the Nanban unit and will complete his portions.
Nanban is the remake of the Hindi smash hit film 3 Idiots which starred Aamir Khan, Maadhvan and Sharman Joshi. In the Tamil version, Vijay, Jiiva and Srikanth essay these roles. Ileana plays the female lead.
