It seems Ajith is in no mood to let go of his ambitious project Billa 2.
The actor, who was earlier slated to team up with Billa director Vishnuvardhan for the sequel, has apparently fallen out with the director. But Ajith can’t let his project suffer due to the strained relationships.
It was earlier reported that the film was put on backburner as Vishnu started shooting Sarvam with Arya. Ajith too went ahead with Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha. Buzz was that the two will unite once their ongoing projects are complete. But the blow was when even after completing Sarvam, Vishnuvardhan failed to shift focus to Billa 2 and started another project in Telugu with Pawan Kalayan.
An industry source tells us, “Ajith is well aware of Vishnu’s lack of interest in making the sequel to the film that’s been a great hit in Ajith’s career. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Thala has decided to team up with another director.”
Ajith has joined hands with the director of Unnai Pol Oruvan, Chakri Toleti for Billa 2. The actor and director are penning a new script and have decided to take the project on floors in April or May this year.
We wonder what Vishnuvardhan will have to say about the development.
