In a recent interview notable distributor Tirupur Subramaniam revealed how Thala Ajith did “Billa” for only half his salary . S.S Chakravarthy’s NIC Arts bankrolled most of Ajith’s films until “Ji” with both partying ways due to some misunderstanding.
Later on S.S Chakravarthy created problems for Ajith during the shooting times of AVM productions “Tirupathi” stating he has call sheets of the actor and demanded Ajith did one more film for him. Despite all the issues when Ajith realized that S.S Chakravarthy was in financial crisis Ajith immediately said yes to the movie and even went on to say that he will do the film for him for the half the salary he receives now.
Nic Arts Chakravarthy then transferred Ajith’s Call sheet to another Producer and Ajith went on to complete the film for half his salary. The film was Titled “Billa”, The rest they say is History !!!
