Ajith Kumar has proved his star power again, as his latest trailer of his upcoming movie Billa 2 has garnered more attention than a much-awaited Bollywood film. Well, the new teaser of the Tamil movie has got more hits on video-sharing site YouTube than Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz starrer Barfi.
Billa 2 and Barfi trailers were released on July 2 evening and both the trailers have been overwhelmingly welcomed by fans. But the interesting part of the story is that the teaser of Tamil film got more views than the Bollywood movie. While the Ajith Kumar's film managed to cross five-lakh mark in 48 hours, the Ranbir Kapoor's movie could only manage to cross 4.75 lakh hits.
At the end of second day, Ajith Kumar's Billa 2 trailer had got 522,452, whereas Barfi had received 482,254 hits. However, the current views stand at 662,030 and 595,765, which clearly shows that Billa 2 is way ahead of Barfi.
Barfi is a romantic comedy film directed by Anurag Basu. It is a heart-warming tale of Murphy (a deaf and dumb boy) and Jhilmil (a mentally challenged girl) and Ileana D'Cruz. The film talks about the prankster Murphy, whose bitter-sweet relationships with Illeana and Priyanka would lead to twists and turns in their respective lives.
On the other end, Billa 2, which is a prequel to Billa, is a gangster-thriller starring Ajith Kumar, Parvathy Omanakuttan and Bruna Abdullah in the leads. It is about David Billa's transformation from an ordinary man to underworld kingpin. It is directed by Chakri Toleti.
