Watch the trailer of Lalkar (VIP 2 in Tamil).
The makers of the film decided to release VIP 2 as Lalkar in Hindi as both the actors have a 'huge fan base in the North.' "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," Soundarya earlier told news agency IANS.
VIP 2 is a sequel to Velraj-directed 2014 film Velaiilla Pattadhari. Amala Paul, Vivek, Samuthirakani and Saranya Ponvannan will also reprise their roles in the second part.
