Billa 2 was earlier reported to be a delayed as Vishnuvardhan had shifted his priorities to the Telugu flick titled The Shadow with Pawan Kalyan which will kick off in March. Well the decision was neither favored by the fans and nor by the producers who wanted Billa 2 to start rolling this April just after Ajith completes his Mankatha duties.
The producers have settled the matter amicably with Vishnuvardhan as one of the industry insiders revealed, “Well Vishnuvardhan will be working for the Pawan Kalyan flick and we have decided that Billa 2 will be directed by Chakri Toleti who will kick off the project this April end. We surely don’t have any hard feelings for Vishnu as we will be looking forward to take up further projects together.”
Director Chakri Toleti holds a degree in Filmmaking and VFX from USA .He has also directed Kamal Haasan’s Unnaipol Oruvan apart from showcasing his acting skills as Sairam in Kamal’s Dasavathaaram.
Well Yuvan Shankar Raja has been confirmed to compose the scores and director Vishnuvardhan was on the receiving end when Yuvan earlier said, “This miss will be a costly one for Vishnu” and a costly one it is as the movie will be a 30 crore offering said to be Ajith’s most expensive till date.
The entire team for Billa 2 will be announced latest by March 15th and surely we will also find out if it is Anushka to sizzle as Ajith’s onscreen pair.
