Anushka Shetty continues to be Kollywood's most in demand actress to do big films.

The latest we hear is that Sweety as she is known among friends has been pencilled in to do Billa-2 with Tamil Cinema's most handsome superstar Ajith.

The good news is that Billa-2 will start rolling in the middle of April. The film is being produced by Suresh Balaji, son of the legendary producer K Balaji who originally made Rajinikanth's Billa.

Vishnuvardhan is the director and Yuvan Shankar Raja will provide music. Nirav Shah is the cameraman.

Now the big heroine hunt has started for the film. Vishnu and the makers are looking for somebody who can carry off a glam role with ease.

A source close to the development said: "The team is looking at a girl who can spring a surprise in a glam role like what Nayanthara did in Billa-1. As of now only Anushka fits the bill and her pairing with Ajith would make the film red hot".

However the trouble is that the actress is not showing any interest in doing glam roles in Tamil.  In Vettaikaran and Singam, Anushka did not wear any revealing clothes compared to her Telugu films. Remember she sizzled doing Nayanthara's role in Billa Telugu.

Meanwhile Anushka who plays a lawyer in Vijay directed Deivamagan, does not romance Vikram nor does she have a song in it.  Anyway let us hope Anushka signs up Billa-2, a film that is sure to take her to new heights.
