Soundarya Rajini confirms Billa-2
Soundarya Rajinikanth, the director of Rajini's forthcoming animated magnum opus, Sultan - The Warrior officially confirmed the idea of making Billa 2 with actor Ajith. She said that she will 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. Soundarya is going to produce this sequel in association with Warner Bros. Pictures India. Earlier, when people watched Billa, they related with it as they would relate to a Hollywood movie. This time, with the Ocher and Warner Bros combination, it looks like Billa 2 would surpass Hollywood and Bollywood standards and herald a new generation of movies.
Ajith recently enjoyed success in Billa, directed by Vishnuvardhan. The remake of a 70s' blockbuster turned out to be an enhanced version with grandeur, stunning locales, excellent cinematography, glamorous Nayantara, and above all, a very stylish and dapper Ajith, who portrayed a sadistic, sharp-witted and powerful don. He stole the thunder from others in this movie which had a Hollywood feel.
Apparently attracted by this, Ocher Studios and Warner Bros Pictures India have decided to include the victorious duo of Ajith and Vishnuvardhan in their first venture. The teaming up of Ajith and Vishnuvardhan has led the Tamil film industry to speculate that Ocher and Warner Bros are making Billa 2.
For another project, Ocher and Warner are planning to rope in Vijay. They have plans to make eight more films with frontline heroes of Tamil cinema.
