Says Shankar, ‘When I got the offer to direct this film, it was with Vijay in the lead. I was sure he could pull off Aamir’s role and that’s why I signed on the film. Everyone liked Nanban more because Vijay has done something different from his usual roles.’ Asked on doing a remake, he says, ‘I never expected to ever do a remake. This was a new experience, unexpected, but I won’t do another remake. Not even a remake of my own film’.
