Requesting fans nd media not 2 speculate d release date of #vip2.Will announce myself today at 7.Thank u 4 your understanding nd patience.— Dhanush (@dhanushkraja) August 1, 2017
This is what Soundarya had tweeted earlier: "I extend my regrets to inform all Dhanush sir fans and cinema lovers that VIP2's release is being pushed to the first half of August due to inevitable reasons. Thanks for all the patience and understanding. Will announce the confirmed release date very soon."
In June the trailer of VIP 2 released to send the Internet into some sort of a meltdown. The Tamil version garnered over five million views, prompting Dhanush to tweet: "Super thrilled with this response." VIP 2 releases in Hindi as Lalkar.
VIP 2 is actually a sequel to 2014's Velaiilla Pattadhari and will see Dhanush, Amala Paul, Vivek, Samuthirakani and Saranya Ponvannan reprise their roles from the first part. Kajol joins the cast as villainous businesswoman Vasundhara and makes her comeback to Tamil cinema after 20 years. She made her debut in Tamil cinema with 1997's Minsara Kanavu.
