After Ajith, now Simbu is to make use of the hit title and script of Billa for getting a new lease of life in the Tamil film industry.
Simbu who has been struggling to get a position in the box office is using this tried-and-tested technique in his forthcoming film Silambattam. This time he prefers to take after the getups of not the original but the modern version of Ajith starred Billa, .
According to sources, Simbu comes in Billa attire in the climax scene with the same background scored as used in Ajith’s movie.
Silambarasan has time and again expressed his admiration for Ajith. His maiden directorial venture Vallavan saw Silambarasan play an young admirer of Ajith. In Kaalai too he featured in a few scenes with the posters of Ajith.
According to Simbu, costume designer Anu Vardhan, wife of director Vishnuvardhan who directed the modern version of Billa, made some changes in the same suit that Ajith had worn for Billa, to fit Simbu’s size!
