Certain combinations like Gautam Menon-Haris Jeyaraj, Vishnuvardhan-Ajith and Selvaragavan-Yuvan Shankar Raja remain unbeatable. The popular duos have produced some blockbuster hits in Tamil cinema. After Billa, the Vishnuvardhan and Ajith combination is back on track to weave magic onscreen once again. There are many rumours surrounding the Vishnuvardhan film. Some reports say that along with Ajith, Vishnu’s brother Krishna is playing a vital role in the film. Amala Paul, Anushka and Ileana were reportedly approached to play the lead role.
Vishnuvardhan opens up on his film’s status. “I am undoubtedly directing Ajith’s next flick,“ he says, adding, “Yes, we are back now. I am overwhelmed to work with Ajith again. I am currently working on the script. After the action films we have done, Ajith and I have decided to work on an entertaining script rather than on any particular genre. It is too early to talk about the star cast.
Other than Ajith, nobody else has been confirmed yet.“ Vishnuvardhan was ready with a fresh script for Billa 2 but dropped the project later. Was he going to be re-working the same script? “No, this is a different story .
Talks were on for working with Ajith last year itself. I was just sorting out the exact script for Thala,“ he clarifies. Have the issues regarding Billa 2 been sorted out? “There were no issues at all. I am glad to work with Ajith again.“ Asked when the film would start shooting, he says, “The shooting begins in March and I am looking forward to a great time with Ajith on the sets.“
