Balaji, the producer of original Billa with superstar Rajini has politely refused to comment on the demerits of the new version Billa. After seeing the special projection of the film at Four Frames, Balaji said this to our correspondent, "The new version of Billa is very stylish and looking grand. But I am disappointed a bit for the omission of the cameo roles done by late Thengai Srinivasan, Manorama and Ashokan. They have to concentrate more on comedy area... Otherwise there is nothing to comment about it... "
Balaji was done an important role as DSP Alexander in the original version, apart from a producer. Earlier, Ajith had arranged a special show for his costars like Vijay, Surya, and Karthi in the same venue a couple of days before. After the screening, Ajith hosted a party to his costars including Vijay at Taj Coramandal.
