Anuya talked about the last scene of Nanban where she was to deliver a baby and during the process she slaps Vijay hard in the film. Reminiscing the scene Anuya stated, “We would see the scene from the original film on a phone and then, shoot it. It was a frame-to-frame copy. I knew that I had to slap Thalapathy Vijay for the scene. I knew that I had to slap him in such a way that it wouldn’t hurt him. But it still looked like I slapped him really hard. So, I was a bit hesitant. After all, who wants to slap Thalapathy! So, I just gave a pat on his face. And he and Shankar sir were like, ‘We thought you were a good actor’. I was like, ‘sir, how will I do it?’. Shankar sir, replied, ‘This is not Vijay. Just give him a tight slap.’ Then, I told Vijay, ‘You are not Vijay anymore for me’ and then, I slapped (laughs).”
