IN Entertainment today announced VIDYUT JAMMWAL as the Negative Lead in BILLA 2, putting to rest all speculations about the said casting.
BILLA 2 will mark Vidyut’s entry into the Tamil Film Industry. Vidyut is a National Level Gymnast, who started training at the age of 3 with Kalaeppayattu and sought proficiency in a mix of Gymnastics, Jujitsu and Kungfu as he grew up travelling all over India. Over the years, he developed his own forms of routine while excelling in Parkour. Vidyut has been modelling for almost five years and earlier this year, made his Bollywood debut in Nishikant Kamat’s Force (Hindi remake of Tamil film, Kaaka Kaaka) as the main negative lead against John Abraham. Vidyut has also worked with Junior NTR in two Telugu films this year, namely, Shakti and Oosaraveli.
Sunir Kheterpal, CEO – IN Entertainment and Producer of BILLA 2, says, “Vidyut has exceptional talent in the “Action” form in addition to having a tremendous screen presence. A film like BILLA 2 with Superstar Ajith Kumar in the lead needs a strong and a worthy opponent and we believe that we have found the right person in Vidyut for this role.”
Confirming his association with the Film, Vidyut said, “It is like a dream to be making my debut in the Tamil Film Industry with Ajith Sir. I am delighted to be a part of the BILLA Franchise and can’t wait to start work on the Film.”
BILLA 2 finished its first 30 day schedule filming in Hyderabad and Vizag between July-August. The second schedule in Goa lasted for 39 days and ended in the first week of November. In the third week of November, the unit will leave for Georgia in Eastern Europe for the final 20 day schedule of the film. The film is expected to complete principal photography in the first fortnight of December and is being readied for release in April 2012
