Ajith’s Billa 2 beats Ranbir Kapoor’s Barfi on YouTube!
Ajith has proved his star power again, as his latest trailer of his upcoming movie Billa 2 has garnered more attention than a much-awaited Bollywood film. Well, the new teaser of the Tamil movie has got more hits on video-sharing site YouTube than Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana starrer Barfi.

But the interesting part of the story is that the teaser of Tamil film got more views than the Bollywood movie.

At the end of second day, Ajith’s Billa 2 trailer had got 522,452, whereas Barfi had received 482,254 hits. However, the current views stand at 662,030 and 595,765, which clearly shows that Billa 2 is way ahead of Barfi.
Barfi is a romantic comedy film directed by Anurag Basu. It is a heart-warming tale of Murphy (a deaf and dumb boy) and Jhilmil (a mentally challenged girl) and Ileana D’Cruz. The film talks about the prankster Murphy, whose bitter-sweet relationships with Illeana and Priyanka would lead to twists and turns in their respective lives.
