Nanban is also releasing in overseas, while this is the first Tamil movie to be released in France, so the movie will be played with French subtitles. The makers are confident about Nanban as it is a weekend release in festival season.
Nanban is the first remake venture of director Shankar, produced by Gemini Film Circuit that has tunes composed by Harris Jayraj. The film has been certified with a clean U by the Censor board. Nanban casts Vijay, Srikanth, Jeeva and Ileana in the lead roles.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay starring Nanban has been certified by the censor board in the ending of December 2011, so the movie will be considered for 2011 awards and not 2012.
