IN Entertainment (INE), a part of the Hinduja Group is presenting and producing the Ajith-starrer. It's CEO, Sunir Kheterpal, said 'there is huge interest amongst potential buyers for the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of Billa 2. After having extensive discussions with several parties, we decided to collaborate with Aascar based on their commitment on marketing spends and an ability to give the film a hassle-free, wide distribution release in Tamilnadu'
