Beyond any doubt, Billa 2 has emerged to be the biggest release of the year so far, as the film hit more than 1200 screens all over the world today (July 13).
Festival mood prevailed in the theatres screening the film, as Ajith fans burst crackers, distributed sweets and conducted milk ‘abhishekams’ to the cut-outs of the matinee idol.
Some theatres in and around Chennai started screening the film as early as 6 a.m. itself and Ajith fans started thronging cinema halls from as early as 4 a.m.
Directed by Chakrti Toleti, the film produced by Wide Angle Creations and IN Entertainment is a prequel to Ajith’s earlier hit Billa.
The film which has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja has Bruna Abdulla and Parvathy Omanakuttan playing leading ladies. On Thursday noon, a press meet was conducted in Chennai in which the director and producers expressed hope that the film would emerge a winner at the box-office. “It is Ajith’s show all the way,” they said, kindling more expectations.
