Ajith starrer Billa is a sensational hit film in 2007.Now the official news is that Billa-2 is going to kick the floors soon. The film is going to be made with Ajith under the direction of ace filmmaker Vishnuvardhan and the producer is Suresh Balaje.
Suresh Balaje said “It was my late father K Balaje’s dream to make a part two to our biggest hit Rajinikanth’s Billa. We have signed up Ajith to do Billa 2, along with the rest of the team who did the Billa remake consisting of director Vishnuvardhan, cinematographer Nirav Shah, editor Sreekar Prasad and music director Yuvan Shankar Raja. The film is being produced by me and George Pious under the Wide Angle Creations banner and it will be presented by Mumbai based Sunir Khetrapal, CEO of IN Entertainment.”
Later he added “Vishnu is giving finishing touches to Billa 2 script. Vishnu and Ajith feel we should delve into the making of what made Billa such a big mobster. So it will be a prequel and not a sequel. We will start shooting once Ajith completes Mankatha by March 2011. It is a pleasure to do a film with Ajith, as he has class, elan, style and is a huge draw at the box-office.”
