Prabhu will be the latest addition to the star cast of Billa - 2007, remake of the Rajini hit of the same name sans the year. Tamil cinema, as it seems, has inherited the remake mania from Bollywood and in recent days remaking hit Tamil movies of yesteryears are on the rise.
Rajini's Billa - which was already the remake of Hindi Don - will be recreated with Ajith in the lead much to the enticement of fans.
Now that Ajith is busy with his Kreedom, groundwork for Billa 2007 is in top gear. Based on the latest news, Prabhu will don the role of the inspector immortalized by Balaji in the original version of Billa.
Looking back, Prabhu, after his self-imposed retirement from the lead roles, have been synonymous with meaty roles. Ranging from the role of a hilarious sidekick in Vasool Raja to an estranged husband of a possessed girl in Chandramukhi, Prabhu has done it all. Besides, his roles in Unakkum Enakkum and the latest release Thamiraparani won him an unrequited title of a character artist.
Produced by L. Suresh for Ananda pictures, Billa 2007 will be directed by Vishnuvardhan. Ajith will be reportedly flanked by Nayanthara and Pooja in the movie.
