- VIP 2 releases this Friday
- "Looking forward for the reaction," tweeted Dhanush
- The Hindi version has been titled Lalkar
Of naming VIP 2 as Lalkar in Hindi, Soundarya earlier told news agency IANS, "It was a strategic move to make sure the film reaches across all states. With Kajol and Dhanush coming together in a movie for the first time, the title has to connect with the masses. Both the actors have a huge fan base in the North, so we thought of leveraging it thereby keeping a more relatable and easy name for the audience." Dhanush plays an engineer Raghuvaran opposite a villainous entrepreneur Vasundhara.
VIP 2 was earlier scheduled for a July release, on Dhanush's birthday. However, the date was shifted later to August. The release date was announced a week ago with the new teaser of the film.
VIP 2 is a sequel to Dhanush's 2014 film Velaiilla Pattadhari and marks Soundarya's second film as a director. The film also stars Amala Paul and is produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films.
