Amitabh Bachchan's Don released in 1978 was remade in Tamil as Billa in 1980 which catapulted Rajnikanth to the top.
In 2007, Billa was again remade in Tamil by Vishnu Vardhan with Ajith and Nayanthara in the lead. Super slick, with Ajith sporting suits and shades, this version of Billa like the earlier versions, was a runaway success.
Now the Telugu audience is in for a treat as Billa is being remade with Prabhas, Anushka and Namitha.
