Nanban 60% Completed!

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a long time… Lot of happenings… We were continuously shooting in Europe, Andamans, Coimbatore and Chennai. We’ve finished 60% of the film, we have shot almost all the complicated and difficult outdoor sequences of the film including climax. So far we have edited all the scenes and started dubbing… Again we are going for a long schedule next week at one stretch, and we are going to complete the film. One more good news- Mr. Resul Pookutty is joining again with us for Nanban sound designing.

…When we were shooting at Bharath Engineering College last week, I got a call from Singapore… I thought it must be some relatives or fans… Then I thought may be Rajini sir… Yes… It was him only… I was surprised and happy to hear from him… Ubhayakusalobhari!!! (UBKS)… etc … He was sounding like before… Brisk and energetic… He told he will be back after 45 days taking a complete rest…

He is well!
All Is Well!

    Thx to Director/Producer Shankar Sir for revolutionising Tamil movies. The quality of effects that he delivers in his movies is awesome. I am sure he can deliver us Tamil movies in line with the movies being done by Hollywood. I hope in the near future he will make films on scientifical/technological/adventurous/historical platform; and I am sure it will be a real time hit…..All the best in his forthcoming ventures….

    I am happy to hear from the media reports that you are going to join the hands with Super Star for hattrick. It would be nice if you could kindly confirm the same. I also watch Super Star’s interview in Sun TV on the eve of Diwali. During his interveiw, he shared that 3 stories were shared by Shankar Sir and 2 were shot and one hunch back guy’s story is still pending. He further stated that he is ready to give his call sheet for the sake of Shankar Sir at any time. You may kindly note this point. All the very best.

    Sir…Happy Birthday to you…

    This is true ah sir…

    “The Nanban team celebrated the fact that they had completed shooting successfully with a big bash at Hotel Green Park. The entire cast and crew were present for the event. Vijay, Shankar, Jiiva, Srikanth, Harris Jayaraj were part of the festivities. A spirit of fun and bonhomie pervaded the event.Everybody felt that they had made a good film and were proud of their collective effort. Vijay especially was happy to have worked with Shankar since he had been unable to work with him in the past”

  63. Shiva Prakash says:

    Hi Sir,

    I am ardent fan of yours.

    Generally Remakes wont be felt genuine if origianal movie is watched already. (I watched ghajini in telugu and din’t feel same interest in Hindi Ghajini and same with Munnabhai, Shankar dada (Telugu remake of Munnaibhai) is not so felt good.)
    May be cos of content is know already.
    In that case there will be tremondous pressure is to hold the interest of audience. And here one more point 3 Idiots is biggest hit that almost of the people watched it.

    So how du gonna handle sir…

    to be generic, what makes you to deal with a subject that is already handled very well.

    Awaiting ur reply.. :-)

    Hello sir,
    Ubayakushalobari..I respect all ur films…My fav is ur film gentleman,anniyan and endhiran and other msg for youth films..The way u stressed out the point of bringing out d black money out is current situation of india, expecially after indian thatha anna hazare..
    why do u go to foreign just for shooting a song..though u choose beautiful locations be it lens loyz or adhisayam like…ur very creative..Many have never explored India…Explore the beauty of India in ur songs..Along with black money make films strssing on right to education for children and “how to protect our monuments”….
    Thanks for entertaining us by ur films..but reduce outdoor and plan for indoor shooting(India)…

  126. SAM says:

    Dear Shankar Sir,

    I am writing after a very long time and happy to see your post…Nice to see All is Well from you…Initially, I was bit disappointed when you started this project. I do not want you to do some remake but after seeing the stills, I can see your unique trademark and a curiosity is rising slowly with expectations just like your other earlier films…so am sure, Nanban would be a Shankar’s film with some new locations and theme.

    Thank you for sharing the experience with Rajni Sir…I would request you to please start some fresh project (lighter one without much physical stress) with Rajni Sir after Nanban…

    Wish you and your entire crew of Nanban a very “All the Best”..

  150. Kiran.T.D. says:

    there are already lot of expectations for the movie as vijay-shankar combo was most expected nxt to rajini-shankar combo.all vijay fans are looking forward & having lot of faith in this film.we r sure that u ll take vijay anna to the nxt level.

    we need to see a film with “vijay-shankar-rahman” combo. v all be happy if it is a fresh revolutionary script(like mudhalvan,Indian).

    in all ur movies there will some scenes related to science and that field.u would have used it for some to make the scenes interesting(like butterfly flying inside the pen from the film indian and love meter in anniyan,prabhu deva turning into god in khadhalan).we are expecting lot of such scenes in nanban as the story revolves around science and engg.

  151. Karthikeyan L says:

    Hi sir.Am u r fan.I like all ur movies.All the films with different concepts.Really u r the legend of this Kollywood.I like Mudhalvan,sivaji,especially ENTHIRAN most.I will be very eager to see any song from ur movie due to ur presentation of that song. Now u r doing film with our thalapathy..very happy and waiting for the release…..

    I think u have made a sript ready for him like anniyan as per ur earlier mail confirmation.
    I have posted so many comments but till date there is no reply , no problem sir , if u really wants to make ur fans / rajinifans happy i request u to be do ENTHIRAN -2 / new anniyan script Which is badly needed to again prove our TAMIL FILM INDUSTRY IS THE BEST & that should be the last film of RAJINI SIR / my uyer SHANKAR SIR Combination no one should forget till there soul Lost , ATLEAST PLASE PLEASE PLEASE REPLY as “YES (or)smile logo”, SO that we understand that you are going to make ur fans / rajini fans to sleep better than ever.

    The people had understand this concept now …”that remaking 1 or 2 movies is not wrong …….but remaking every movie is definitely wrong”…..this has happened only bcoz of U…ya its true sir….i should only thanks the movie “3 idiots” not “U”….

    When i watched for the 2nd ,3rd,.etc time(3-idiots)….I used to think how Shankar sir will handle this scene,,,how he wil work here,,what type of schedule he plans…everything scene by scene….I am learning from you a lot sir ….really ….

    1 important thing sir…”i am not having any problem(kavalai)….I know that this movie will be a block-buster,,,,i too know about Shankar & his movies ……just think me as a boost (an additional support)….
    I AM 100% sure that Shankar is the best ever director in film industry…..k va….((Sorry for speak against ur reply…hope u never mind this sir….))…

    COOOOooooolllll sir……


    i am really should thank you for shooting some shots in Triplicane(highly familiar for me)(especially near ratna cafe….the shooted spot is at a approximate distance of 50m from my peripa house)…..Thanks a lot…..
