The buzz in the industry is that the makers of the film have decided to release Billa 2 on July 13, as they get enough time to publicise the movie. It is said that the movie bosses felt that the above-mentioned date would be appropriate for the release considering no other releases either in the first week or the second week of July.
It may be recalled that originally Billa 2 was planned to release on July 22 but it got delayed due to censor issues after it was issued 'A' certificate. However, the makers of the film, who were not happy with the 'A' certification and many cuts, reportedly send it for the review committee in order to bag 'U/A' but it did not yield favourable results for the film.
Billa 2 directed Chakri Toleti tells the story of dreaded gangster David Billa's glorious past. The film focusses how an ordinary man from the coastal regions of South Tamil Nadu becomes a don. The movie also features Parvathy Omanakuttan and Bruna Abdullah in the female lead roles and it is a sequel to Billa, which was directed by Vishnuvardhan.
