Meenakshi DixitWith the number of glam dolls featured in the Tamil film increasing, Billa 2 may well be on its way to become a James Bond-esque film.

Meenakshi Dixit, who did a dance number with Mahesh Babu in Dookudu, is the newest entrant in the film with Ajith.

Parvathy Omanakuttan, the first runner-up at the Miss World 2008 competition, replaced the original choice, Huma Quereshi,
and became Ajith's heroine in the film.

Chakri Toleti, the director of Kamal Haasan-Mohanlal starrer Unnaipol Oruvan (remake of A Wednesday) is the director of Billa 2.

The film is produced by IN Entertainment (India) Limited along with Wide Angle Creations, the production house led by Suresh Balajee and George Pius.

The late Balajee was the producer of the original Billa, but his son Suresh, himself a producer, gave the permission to another producer to remake it with Ajith as the hero, in 2007.
