Hemant Chaturvedi has moved out for Billa 2! When this film was first announced it was said that Nirav Shah will be the cinematographer, and then he was replaced by Hemant Chaturvedi as there was delay in commencing Billa 2.
Now, Hemant has also moved out of the project as he feels that the delay in commencement of Billa 2 may hurt his chances in Bollywood. Grapevine has it that RD Rajasekhar has been roped in to handle the camera now.
It is Vishnuvardhan who came up with the idea for Ajith's Billa 2 and planned it as a prequel to Billa but later he opted out of the film and the opportunity to direct the film landed on Chakri Toleti’s court.
