Thalapathy Vijay and director Shankar have worked together in the film Nanban, which is the Tamil remake of Hindi film 3 Idiots. Other than Thalapathy Vijay, the film had Srikanth and Jiiva in the lead roles. Now, according to a report in The Times Of India, Thalapathy Vijay turned down the offer to act in Shankar’s Mudhalvan, as he had issues with his remuneration for the film.
