- "Release is being pushed to the first half of August," Soundarya tweeted
- VIP 2 is Dhanush and Kajol's first film together
- It is a sequel to Dhanush's 2014 film Velaiilla Pattadhari
Here's Soundarya's tweet.
In VIP 2, Dhanush plays an engineer Raghuvaran while Kajol features as a villainous entrepreneur Vasundhara. This is Kajol's second Tamil film in two decades. She debuted in the Tamil industry with 1997's Minsara Kanavu.
VIP 2 trailer, which was unveiled in June, received an overwhelming response. "VIP 2 trailer reaches 5M views Tamil .. and 3M views Telugu on YouTube alone. Super thrilled with this response. Thank you so much guys," tweeted Dhanush.
The film will be titled Lalkar in Hindi. "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 also stars Amala Paul and is produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films.
