Director Shankar is gearing upto release his prestigious project Nanban which has Vijay, Jeeva, Ileana, Srikanth and Sathyaraj in the lead roles. Currently the final editing of the film is under progress and the director has to still wrap up half a song and some patchwork with which the film gets completed.
Though Nanban was initially said to be a bilingual in Tamil and Telugu but nothing has been finalized on this front. Now latest we hear is that the makers of Nanban are going to release the Telugu dubbed version of the film in Andhra Pradesh. Producers of Nanban Gemini Film Circuit and director Shankar have a massive market for their films in Andhra. Even the lead cast Jeeva, Srikanth and Ileana has a brand in AP but its only Vijay who doesn't have a dubbing proper market.
Gemini Film Circuit and Shankar are now in plans of promoting Vijay in Andhra. In order to fulfill this now all Vijay old films are suddenly getting dubbed in Telugu.
The audio of the film is expected to hit the stores soon as Harris is currently busy with the audio of Suriya's 7am Arivu.
Nanban is now going to release in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously on January 14, 2012.
