Amitbh Bachchan’s Don in Hindi was a blockbuster. An year ago, Farhan Akhtar remade Don with Shah Rukh Khan which was also a runaway hit at the box office. Akhtar’s Don was remade in Tamil as Billa with Ajith, Nayanthara and Namitha which again was a super hit.
Now the Tamil Billa is being remade in Telugu with the same title by Prabhod and Narendra under the banner of Gopikrishna Movies. This film starring Prabhas, Anushka and Namitha, is being directed by Meher Ramesh of Kanthri fame.
A schedule of shooting of Billa starts in Vizag from October 20. Later the film will be shot in different locales of Hyderabad, Malaysia, Bangkok and Dubai.
