“Actually Ajith has two projects in his hands. One to be helmed by Vishnuvardhan and the other by Siruthai fame Shiva. But Ajith chose Vishnuvardhan since it is a long due to work with him,” circles close to the ‘Thala’ say.
They add: “It was Vishnuvardhan who was to direct Billa 2. But he missed it due to unavoidable reasons. At that time, Ajith promised Vishnu that he would work with him soon. The actor is honouring it now.”
Another reason is said to be Shiva being busy with a Telugu film starring Ravi Teja and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles. “The Ajith-Shiva venture will start after May 2012,” sources say. It will be produced by Vijaya Productions to mark the centenary of its founder Nagi Reddy.
