Director Vishnuvardhan might have completed the script of ‘Billa-2’ nearly before a year, but had to wait for the call of producers. Instantly, he was into the other project ‘The Shadow’, Telugu movie starring Pawan Kalyan and Anushka Shetty in lead roles. Now as both the projects are clashing with both the shooting schedules, Vishnuvardhan had no options other than giving up ‘Billa-2’.

The producers and Vishnuvardhan had some discussions recently and came up with such decision. But they have made it clear that they will have Vishnuvardhan working on their other project.

Chakri Toleti, who made his debut directorial through Kamal Haasan’s ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ has been signed to wield megaphone for this film. The team will now have new writers working on the script along with Chakri.

This will be a prequel to ‘Billa’ that looks into the story of how an ordinary man across the shores of Tuticorin becomes the most powerful international don.
