Cinematographer RD Rajasekhar, who is working with Ajith Kumar after nine years, has shot the first schedule of the shooting in a high-resolution camera. The interesting part is that Billa 2 is said to be the first Asian film to be shot in an 'epic' camera, which are mainly used to shoot snorkelling, surfing, boating, shallow dives, and any other situation where a camera could come in contact with water.
Earlier, Hollywood movie Avatar was filmed in 'epic' camera. However, the makers of the film are also planning the post-production works of Billa 2 in the US. They want to the movie to be in the international standards, says a production house source.
Ajith Kumar starrer Billa 2 tells the tale of David Billa's past. His childhood and his entry to the underworld form the crux of the story. The second instalment is written and directed by Chakri Toleti. The prestigious project also features Mumbai-based model Huma Qureshi, Bruna Abdullah, Prabhu, Rahman, Krishnakumar and others in the cast.
