The mood in the country is clearly against corruption now and producer AM Rathnam who made Indian with Shankar and Kamal Haasan feels that the time is right for a sequel. Shankar said that it was touching that people were referring to Anna Hazare as Indian Thatha a character which he had created.
The director remains undecided about the sequel however and said that right now Nanban is taking up all his time and effort. After Nanban is done, he will think about his next project. About Vijay, Shankar has nothing but words of praise and says that his character is one for all the ages and everyone is going to love him.
