Coimbatore: When Shankar teams up with Ilayathalapathy Vijay, the stage surely gets set for an extravaganza.

Kovai stood witness to the music launch of Shankar’s latest movie ‘Nanban’ which is the remake of Rajkumar Hirani’s super hit Hindi movie ‘3 Idiots’.

The ‘3 Idiots’ in Shankar’s flick are Vijay, Jeeva, Srikanth. Ileana D’Cruz is the leading lady while Harris Jayaraj has composed the soundtrack and background score.

The 3D audio launch was a night to remember for those present at the Hindustan College of Arts and Science. The audio was launched to the tune of “En frienda pole yaaru machan”. Kovaimakkal also got to see a 3-minute trailer of the movie as a special gift.
The show began on a high note with 20 Turkey belly dancers grooving to tune of ‘Askku Laska`.

Apart from the lead troika, actors Prabhu, Sathyaraj and Sathyan were also present at the do and they did add to the fun-filled ambience by regaling the audience with their brand of humour.
Ilayathalapathy gave a personal touch to the event when he sang a few lines of the 16-language ‘Askku Laska`.

Shankar was, as always, his humble self. The super hit director who delivered some of the biggest hits in recent years said that the credit for ‘Nanban’ should all go to Rajkumar Hirani.
