Parvathy Omanakuttan’s film re-released

The actress’ first Hindi debacle hits theatres again in the city just before her Billa 2 release

She’s looking forward to her film with Thala Ajith which is set to release in May.
And it looks like former Miss India Parvathy Omanakuttan has been slowly gaining popularity in Chennai. Though her first Hindi flick, United 6, failed miserably at the box office, it seems that the actress’ increasing recognition here has made them release this movie just before Billa 2 hits theatres.

Ask the producer of Billa 2, Sunir Kheterpal, if this will affect his film or the actress’ career prospects and he states, “United 6 is a two-year-old Hindi film. Why would it affect Billa 2? We are introducing Parvathy in this flick in Tamil. And the fact is Billa 2 is about Ajith and his life before he became Billa and not about what Parvathy did before she was selected for this film. We auditioned more than 30 prospects and selected her based on requirements of the character she has to portray. Everyone will know why after the film releases.”

Contrary to popular belief, Billa 2 is not the first Tamil flick to be signed by the model-actress. In fact, in May 2010, the pooja for the Tamil film she first signed, Uma Maheswaram, was held in Chennai. Parvathy was signed on to play the lead opposite a newcomer named Mani. However, the film didn’t take off for reasons unknown.
