Remember Ajith’s 2007 blockbuster movie “Billa”? Well, “Billa 2” is all set to be the prequel to that story. This installment by Chakri Toleti shows how a common man, who happens to be an Eelam refugee, David (Ajith) and hails from the coastal regions of Tamil Nadu would eventually become Billa, a feared underworld don.
Aijit is cast as the lead in the movie, and Parvathy and Bruna Abdullah are his leading ladies, with Sudhanshu Pandey in an important part. Huma Qureshi had originally been cast, but with changes in script, the female lead too got changed.
Ajith’s original movie ‘Billa’ that released in 2007 and was directed by Vishnuvardhan, got him noticed more than ever, and the movie itself had done very well with Nayanthara and Namitha, undertaking rather steamy scenes.
A point of interest is that the director of the movie, CHakri Toleti, is going to use an EPIC camera for the movie. This makes Billa 2 the first Indian movie to be shot using the camera, which was made famous by James Cameron when he filmed his movie, ‘Avatar’.
As per the demands of the script, the audience would get to see a much younger Ajith in this movie. The score of the movie has been composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, of the Mankatha fame. Cinematographer for the movie is RD Rajashekar.
The logo for the film has been received very enthusiastically by the thala fans, and you can see that it certainly has taken the social networking sites by storm.
Ajith shares screen space with the two buxom beauties, the music directed by Yuvan, and not to mention, Chakri’s direction, and this can only spell the formula for a super hit. Billa 2 is certainly going to open in April 2012 to a full house. It certainly is one of the most eagerly anticipated movies of 2012.
