The overseas distribution rights were sold for 53 million to the US-based company GK Media, the highest ever for an Ajith film. In March 2012, The Sun TV bought the satellite rights for a record price, with sources estimating the price at ₹6 million.

Venu Ravichandran's Aascar Films eventually acquired the theatrical distribution rights of Tamil Nadu for ₹260 million. All the distribution rights of the film, except the Kerala and Hindi dubbing rights had been sold at a record price of more than ₹400 million, making Billa II one of the top pre-release revenue generating films of all time in the Tamil film industry. In early May 2012, the Kerala release rights were finally sold to Sagara Entertainment and Money Tree Entertainment for ₹8million, likewise a new record for an Ajith film. Billa II received an adult rating ("A" certificate) from the Central Board of Film Certification, due to its "high glamour quotient, violence and the mature content". In the UK, the film was issued an 15 certificate by the British Board of Film Classification with an advice that it contained "very strong violence and revenge theme".

Billa II was initially planned to release on 13 April 2012, coinciding with Tamil New Year, but the release was postponed to 1 May 2012, coinciding with Ajith Kumar's birthday, with the makers considering to bring forward the film by four days to release it on a Friday. However, the release became further delayed and was pushed to the second half of May 2012. After considering the first four Fridays in June 2012 for the film's release, the producer finally zeroed in on 13 July as the release date. Billa 2 was released across over 1,400 screens worldwide, making it one of the largest Tamil releases ever.
