After a stupendous success of VIP the spectators now have the chance to enjoy Velaiilla Pattadhari 2, popularly referred to as VIP 2. It is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed by Soundarya Rajnikanth. A sequel to the 2014 Tamil film Velaiilla Pattadhari, the film has Dhanush, Kajol and other casts. Dhanush, besides acting, is also co-producing the film and has written the story and dialogues for the film. The film will be dubbed in Telugu as VIP 2 and in Hindi as VIP 2: Lalkar. The team recently promoted the film in Delhi and the trailer launch in Hindi made it more special.
Dhanush on being asked about his role and the movie said, “VIP 2 is all about the bigger challenges that you face even if you become successful and the corporate world is actually a political game. So the movie is about what is that game and how is it played. Moreover, my character is named Raghuvaran, he’s very street smart, witty, and it’s impossible to shut him up. All the challenges that he faced be it failure or success, he handles it in the same way and nothing can actually affect him.”
Soundarya, when asked about the bonus of being from a well-known family background, said, “At the end of the day talent is what is going to last and if you are not talented then family to which you belong doesn’t matter. Fulfilling the expectations when you are from a well-known family is even more difficult because coming back if you fall is a great challenge then. So if you have talent you’ll last. On being asked about the experience while working with Kajol she said, “Kajol has done a great job in the film and actually spoke Tamil in the film and was excellent at learning script and acting in it. She accepted our story because she believed in the character. It was a pleasure having her with us.”
In VIP 2, Kajol is touted to play a negative role. Also, the highlight of the film is the face-off between Dhanush and Kajol. Interestingly, Kajol is making her comeback in Tamil after two decades. Kajol on being asked about the same said, “I had a great time working with the film. I said no to the film first but when they came and narrated the script I liked it and had that confidence that they will be able to execute it well and decided to do it. I said no because I was not confident that I will be able to take the risk and do justice to the film. I loved the character and the main reason behind that was, the character was a self-made woman who doesn’t need any label. She is a confident entrepreneur and strongly believes in her conviction and ideologies. Moreover, Dhanush and Soundarya worked and supported me a lot throughout.”
VIP 2 is expected to release soon.
