While the makers of Mankatha are yet to decide on the release status of album and film, everything is set on right tracks with Thala’s next film Billa-2. Chakri Toleti comes up with official announcements pertaining to the film’s shooting and release date as well.
Chakri says, ‘the film will go on floors from day after tomorrow (July 14, 2011) in Hyderabad followed by other schedules in Goa, Pondicherry, Thailand, Eastern Europe.
Apart from Huma Qureshi, we have signed another actress Bruna Abdullah (I Hate Luv Storys fame) while Prabhu plays an important role. Yuvan Shankar Raja has already started working on music and Na. Muthukumar is penning lyrics. Rest of the crew consists of Selva (Art), RD Rajashekar (Cinematography)…”
Rubbishing rumors on the film’s plot, Chakri adds that the film doesn’t delineate Ajith Kumar as a 20-yr old roughneck, but traverses across 4-5 years from his late 20s and how he becomes world’s most powerful don.
The producers are planning to complete the shooting by end of November and theatrical release is scheduled on April 14, 2012 for the occasion of Tamil New Year Day.
