The music of the much-awaited Tamil movie ‘Billa’ was launched today in a function held at Silpa Kala Vedika, Hyderabad. All the songs in ‘Billa’ are breathtaking and the critics are raving about it already.

The event was attended by Dasari Narayana Rao, Krishnam Raju, Rajamouli, VV Vinayak, Allu Arjun and Gopichand amongst others. The first copy of the CD was given to Raju and the movie’s official website was launched by Allu Arjun.

Veteran director Dasari Narayana Rao said: “Krishnam Raju’s Gopi Krishna Movies has high production value and earlier it has made many big budget films like ‘Tandra Paparayudu’ that might have cost about 50 cores if made in the present. Prabhas is an able successor to Krishnam Raju and I feel he will live up to the expectations.”

The music has been given by acclaimed music director Yuvan Shankar Raja and composed by Mani Sharma.

Billa is the remake of the 2007 Tamil blockbuster movie of the same name, starring Ajith Kumar and Nayanthara. Even this movie was a remake of a 1980 movie starring Rajnikanth. The story is similar to that of Bollywood movie ‘Don’, which portrayed the life of an Indian gangster and was remade recently starring SRK.

The movie was directed by Meher Ramesh, of Kantri fame and it stars Prabhas, Anushka and Namitha. Hansika Motwani will be seen in a sizzling item number and the video of that song is already making headlines everywhere. You can listen to all the songs here.

Billa is set to release in April this year. Check out the trailer below.
