A source close to the actress confirmed that the actress was approached to play one of the leads in Billa 2, but she declined due to date hassles.
The actress was last seen in Tamil in Raman Thediya Seethai, released in 2008. However, she had plenty of films in Telugu and Malayalam. Besides, she is part of Hollywood project Dam 999, which is in post production. According to sources, Vimala is likely to act in a Tamil film with Vikram soon, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
