The ‘Ultimate Star’ Ajith is a busy bee shooting without any break for Billa 2. Close on the heels of completing Mankatha (whose music will hit the stands on August 10), the ‘Thala’ started shooting for Billa 2.
Billa 2 is a prequel to Ajith’s earlier hit Billa, which is a remake of a Superstar Rajinikanth film of the same title. Directed by Chakri Toleti, the fast-growing movie has music by Ajith’s lucky mascot Yuvanshankar Raja.
Meanwhile, Mankatha is expected to hit the screens by the end of this month, faithfully following the music release. Directed by Venkat Prabhu, the multistarrer is produced on a lavish budget by Dhayanidhi Alagiri’s Cloud Nine Movies.
Says sources close to Ajith, ‘He is a thorough
professional. For him, cinema is always a passion. He is shooting non-stop for the past few months for Mankatha and Billa 2. His fans would be doubly happy with back to back releases’.
