Joining the bandwagon of re-releases in Tamil cinema might be Ajith’s super hit ‘Billa’, a 2007 blockbuster. The reason being, Thala Ajith’s fans want the film to be screened on his birthday that falls on May 1.
The film’s prequel, ‘Billa 2′ was slated for a release on the matinee idol’s birthday but its seeing a major delay due to the unexpected tussle between producers and workers that has delayed most Tamil films’ release dates and the extended post production work of the film. The latest is that the film might release in the fag end of May or in the beginning of June.
The Thala fans are now demanding a ‘Billa’ re-release to celebrate his birthday and sources in the know express that the makers are also toying with this idea as the film has much demand and might see a good run if released this season where audiences are eager to watch their favourite heroes on big screen.
‘Billa’ featuring Ajith, Nayantara, Namitha, Prabhu and Rahman was helmed by Vishnuvardhan. The movie had music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the tunes are still popular among music lovers and Ajith’s fans.
