In 2014, Amala Paul‘s career received a shot in in the arm when she played Dhanush’s love interest in the much-loved ‘VIP’ and received favourable reviews for her work. Now, nearly after three years she has reprised her role in ‘VIP 2’. During a recent interaction with a leading daily, Amala opened up about her role in the Soundarya Rajinikanth-directed sequel and said that her character in ‘VIP 2’ is an extension of the one she played in the first part. She went on to add that Soundarya’s given a lot of importance to her character and she has reaped the benefits of working with a lady director.
“From the neighbour, I’ve become the wife in this one. I see it as a beautiful extension of my character, especially because of Soundarya; her attention to my character has let me see the advantages of having a lady director,” she added.
Well, we hope that Amala is able to deliver a solid performance this time as well and add another feather to her cap.
In case you did not know, ‘ViIP 2’ is an action-comedy and hit screens earlier today. Besides Amala, it stars Dhanush and Kajol in the lead. While D reprises his Raghuvaran character from the first part, B-town’s ‘Dulhania’ essays the role of a ruthless businesswoman.
Interestingly, this is Dhanush’s first outing of the year. He was last seen in ‘Kodi’. A political-thriller, Kodi also featured Trisha Krishnan in the lead and opened positive reviews upon release.
