Shankar is working at record speed to wrap up Nanban. He has already completed two schedules and is planning on maintaining the same speed for the third schedule which is due to begin soon. The super-successful director usually takes a long time to complete his films as he is very particular about detailing and also has a tendency to re-shoot extensively.
But given that Nanban is a multi-starrer with big stars like Vijay and Telugu sensation Ileana who are also involved in other projects and have limited dates, Shankar is working at a fast and furious pace in order to avoid date hassles and other complications.
Insiders say that the director is urging Harris Jayaraj to give him all the songs quickly so that the audio launch can be held in September making a Diwali release possible. Two songs have been completed and Harris is working round the clock to finish the rest of the music. Will Nanban explode in theatres on Diwali? We certainly hope so.
