Ajith was actively involved in the penning of the screenplay for Asal and will now do so for Billa 2. Director Vishnuvardhan had readied a screenplay for Billa 2 and had the approval of Wide Angle Creations to go ahead with the film.
However, Vishnu was busy with the Arya starrer Sarvam at that time and the project could not take off leading Ajith to sign up Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha. Now, Vishnu is concentrating in a Telugu flick that has Pawan Kalayan playing the lead and hence he is not in a position to direct Ajith in Billa 2.
Following this, Ajith and Chakri Toleti, the director of Unnai Pol Oruvan, are jointly penning a new script for Billa 2. The project is expected to go on floors as planned in April or May this year.
