CHENNAI: It was a special occasion for the unit of Ananda Film Circuit.

A relaxed looking Rajinikanth formally launched the remake of "Billa", in the presence of its hero Ajith and a host of other dignitaries, recently.

Tips from the superstar

There was no formal speech on the occasion, but Rajinikanth and Ajith seemed to be engaged in a fairly long conversation. Perhaps, there were a few tips from the superstar on how he did the role so many years ago.

Actor-producer Balaji evoked laughter when he addressed the superstar as `Sivaji Rao'. AVM Saravanan and actor Prabhu were among those who turned up to congratulate Ajith. Producer L. Suresh announced that the shooting for the film would begin from May 4 in Malaysia.

It would go on for nearly a month. The unit would return to Chennai for further work.

The film is directed by Vishnuvardan.
