Shankar is smiling all the way as his Nanban has taken a fantastic opening. A remake of Hindi hit Three idiots, the movie has been officially declared the first big hit of the year.
Says Shankar, 'I didnít want anything to be lost in the conversion of the film from Hindi to Tamil. I had to retain the emotions. Shankar - the director - took a backseat and I became a medium to help remake this movie. '
He says, ' after we cast right actors for all the roles, we were confident that we could pull it off. Nanban has come good without spoiling the original and everyone appreciates us now'.
