We read sometime back that Huma Qureshi, who was roped in to romance Ajith in ‘Billa 2’, might not be a part of the movie due to some ‘unavoidable reasons’. Now it is learnt that the makers of the movie have found a replacement, and it is Parvathy Omanakuttan!
Parvathy Omanakuttan, the Femina Miss India World 2008, made her cinematic debut through the Bollywood flick ‘United Six’ directed by Vishal Aryan Singh. She later signed a Malayalam film titled ‘Madan Kolli’ by Major Ravi, in which she had to play dual roles; one that of a police officer and the other that of a vampire. In 2010 she appeared in ‘Uma Maheshwaram’ in Tamil.
“Parvathy is very happy to act opposite a big star like Ajith. She was aware of the history of ‘Billa’ and was thrilled to sign the project. She will join the film’s unit in Goa, where some important scenes are being shot”, sources close to the project say.
A prequel to ‘Billa’, Ajith’s 2007 super hit which is a remake of a Superstar Rajinikanth starrer of the same title, ‘Billa 2’ is being directed by Chakri Toleti of ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’ fame. The shooting is nearing completion and the movie would hit the screens by the beginning of 2012.
