  8. Manimaran says:

    I request you to make movies on Right to Information Act, problems faced by people and negligence of government servants in replying to RTI act.
    Also make movies on money grabbing hospitals and treatment frauds happening in hospitals.
    Also incorporate some philosophical thoughts in songs.Like relationship between man & God, power of peace, health is wealth & money is not wealth.

    Thanks & Regards

    Even though Nanban is remake of 3 idiots I’m sure you would have made it very special by mixing flavor of south Indian Cinema …. , And Vijay is looking very Good .Expecting it be a very good entertainer and im sure it will be :)

  25. Saravanan Sakthivel says:

    Sorry what I meant was that lot’s of actors films get released in cinema in london. But out of all of them Vijay gets the big screens in the cinema halls

  26. sagar says:

    all is well:)

  27. dhilip says:

    sir we thalapathy fans a individual mass subject from u for our beloved vijayy… vettri

  28. dhilip says:

    sir superb.. thalapathy pattaiya kellapura… vettri kutanee..

  29. Saravanan Sakthivel says:

    Dear Shanker sir,
    I am looking forward to the music and the film release of Nanban. Sir if it is possible, could you have audio lauch in London UK. As you already know, Vijay has a phenomenal following among the tamil dispora and Srilankan tamils. I may be wrong but tamil cinema as far as I can see only looks at the extraordinary following Vijay has in Tamilnadu and Kerala. I have noticed that Vijay has thousands of fans in Europe, UK, Canada and US. One could even say that thouse countries are part of Vijay’s Empire. It would be grateful if you could arrange the audio launch in London as this will show all of tamil cinema how much the tamil people in London love him. Many of Vijay’s films have run successfully here and Vijay is the only tamil actor (apart from Rajini)to have his films release in the big screens in cinema. You may remember the protest march that took place in london in 2009. The government estimates that there were approximately 300,000 tamil people participating. But in reality there are more than 300,000 and most of them enjoy Vijay’s films. If you could book the O2 Arena or Wembley stadium, people will pay even £200 to come.
    Thank you and hope you will work with Vijay again.

  30. Karthik says:

    Dear Shankar Nanba…

  70. Bala says:

    Dear Shankar,

    I am your fan since your first film Gentleman. Every film that you directed was a phenomenal in Tamil Film Industry. I am really curious to watch this remake 3 idiots as NAnBAn in Tamil. Also expecting how you have changed the script to tamil audience. I watched 3 idiots many times. I cried in many scenes in that film though i dont know hindi. I hope NAnBAn will not be the exact replica of 3 idiots since everyone will compare these two movies in every scene. All the BEST for Super Duper Hit….

    PS: What i Observed in 3 Idiots …..
    1. Clean Script
    2. Casting
    3. Excellent Musical Score both in BGM and Songs
    4. Super Photography (Camera Work)
    5. No Boring scenes
    6. Locations (All scenes)

  90. Saravanan says:

    Very gud news to hear. All the best for the movie.

    Without your movies Tamil industry is starving for classic pictures to compete with Bollywood.Everyone knows you research well, plan well to deliver a film,as best as possible..Fans feel ideas to launch more movies atleast one move a year minimum would be much better.its our sincere request..100 miles to go before you sleep.

    There are rumours that you will take indian-2 please dont do that, we want something new from you, 3-idiots remake can be a good start for that.Producers are around you just to make money, i.e. the reason they pushing to remake Indian-2.Indian is anyway a history..Please give us something like gladiator,troy,Aviator or catch me if you can theme…this is our long term dream of indian cinema..Please consider our sincere/honesty request..
