Continuity
The blood stain on David's shirt is spread out when he is fighting inside a building. When he comes out, the stain is not spread out and appears dark. And in the next shot, there is a new blood stain on his belly over the shirt.

Miscellaneous
The antagonist shows a view of his arms factory in an LCD monitor. This is a contradiction as the film was set in a period where LCD monitors and cameras didn't exist.
Trivia:
One of the film's action scenes was shot in Georgia at a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius.

A one-minute teaser of this film got over 500,000 views on YouTube within the first three days of its release, setting a new record for Tamil films.

Though he was urged by the stunt master to use a double for one of the difficult stunt scenes, Ajith insisted he do the scene himself.

Since this film is a prequel, director Chakri Toleti made use of the kind of apparel that was used in the year 2000.

While shooting in Georgia, a group of 20 to 25 Tamil students unfailingly followed the Billa 2 team at every location, just to catch the cast and crew in action. Overwhelmed by this, on the last day of the shoot, Ajith Kumar invited them over to his hotel lobby to spend quality time with them.

This is the first ever film of Ajith Kumar to be released in more than 1000 screens.

This is the first Indian movie to be shot with the Red Epic camera.
