It happened before and again now. When Shah Rukh Khan’s remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Don’ was ennobled as ‘Better than the Best’, Ajith & Vishnuvardhan started working on ‘Billa’ remake. Although, the film wasn’t an exact replica of SRK’s Hindi version, the rumors were unstoppable.
The situation seems to be the same again as there were rumors about Ajith & Shah Rukh Khan meeting together in Mumbai. It was reported that Ajith is acquiring the rights of ‘Don-2’ and will be produced by his home banner ‘Good Will Entertainment’.
But now director Vishnuvardhan has blatantly denied them as baseless rumor saying that ‘Billa-2’ is own conceptualization and it was completed much before SRK started shooting for ‘Don-2’.
