Billa(2007) starring Ajith kumar was made based on the 1980 Super Star starring film of the same name by Vishnuvardhan, and the film was eventually one of the highest grossing Tamil films of the year showing to world Director Vishnuvardhan’s association with Ajith could be a successful one.
As Billa proved to be a landmark movie in Tamil cinema for its stylish looks and action sequences. After Billa Ajith later went on to act in Aegan and Asal while Vishnuvardhan directed Sarvam.
Now the latest news on the actor-director duo is out. Vishnuvardhan is all set to partner again with Ajith for the sequel on Billa. Sources confirm that Vishnu is ready with the script and is waiting for confirmation of dates from Ajith. It is confirmed that the shooting of Billa 2 will commence from early 2011. Whether Ajith will start Billa 2 after his ‘mangatha’ with Venkat Prabhu is still not known.
And on the producers if one should make a guess it would be none other than Sivaji Productions as Ajith Kumar had previously promised them that he’ll work for another project with the producers.
However Billa 2 sounded to our ears in 2008 when soundarya Rajinikanth had said she would start working on the film after June 2009, by which time Ajith will be free from Aegan and she will be free from Sultan: the warrior..But as Soundarya is still not in a position to release her Sultan the Warrior, Billa 2 remains a dream project for her still now?
