It is official, there will be a part two to Ajith's Vishnuvardhan directed Billa !
And the big news is that Billa 2 will be produced by Suresh Balaje, son of the legendary producer and actor K Balaje who produced the original Billa with Rajinikanth.
In an exclusive interview to sify.com 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 Pius under the Wide Angle Creations banner and it will be presented by Mumbai based Sunir Kheterpal, CEO of IN Entertainment, a Hinduja group company."
Suresh Balaje also made it clear that Billa 2 will be a prequel and is looking forward to working with Ajith, with whom he had earlier done Kireedam.
He signs off saying: "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."
