Vijay entertained the audiences by singing the Yedho Unnale song from the film. During this speech, he thanked director Shankar for giving him the opportunity to star in Nanban. Vijay added that he made several true friends during the making of Nanban and attributed this to the film’s title. The star was indicating that Jiiva, Srikanth, and others are his good friends and is happy to be associated with them. He was then honored with an enormous garland and a crown.
Shankar had an interesting episode to narrate about how he came to direct a remake. When Shankar was busy with Endhiran, the shooting was delayed one fine day. This earned him an opportunity to see 3 Idiots. As soon as he saw the film, Shankar said that he decided to go for a remake. That is how Nanban was born!
Praising Vijay, Shankar said that he is one actor after Rajinikanth to be present on the sets punctually. Shankar revealed that SJ Suryah lapped up the role in Nanban, something which he did not do even for Endhiran. That is how meaty his role is in Nanban, added Shankar.
Jiiva, Sathyaraj, Srikanth, SJ Suryah and others had good words to share about their co-stars.
