First Look Poster - Billa 2

The first look poster of the sequel to the 2007 blockbuster Billa - Billa 2 was released by the team as a Deepavali gift to Ajith fans. Billa 2 is being helmed by Vishnuvardhan who also directed the suave and stylish first part of Billa. Billa was an updated remake of Rajnikanth's Billla (1980), which in turn was a remake of Amitabh Bachchan's Don (1977). Even Don was remade in 2006 starring Shah Rukh Khan by Farhan Akhtar and they have already begun shooting the sequel for Don in Berlin. But the storylines of the new versions of the story in Hindi and Tamil are entirely different. While Farhan Akhtar played around with the ending and created a twist of his own in the new Don, Vishnuvardhan remained faithful to the original story in his Billa. So the sequels are also bound to have different stories. There are rumours that Billa 2 may actually be a prequel to Billa since Billa dies in the first movie itself. Anyways, let us wait and watch what the team has to offer. Vishnuvardhan repeats the same team from all his movies - Yuvan Shankar Raja, Nirav Shah, Sreekar Prasad and Anu Vardhan. Ajith badly needs a hit now and 2011 is looking good for him with Venkat Prabhu's Mangatha and now Billa 2 lined up. The leading lady of the sequel is not confirmed yet. Nayanthara, who was the heroine in the first movie may or may not act in the movie, since there are rumours going around that she is going to get married in December. The poster looks cool and creates a certain curiosity level for the flick. And one good thing you can notice is that Ajith Kumar has done away with his 'Ultimate Star' tag. It started with Asal, and he continues that in this one also, which is a good thing.
