Anirudh Ravichander’s catchy tunes were undoubtedly an integral of VIP’s narrative. They not only gelled with narrative but also managed to propel the story to greater heights. Perhaps that is why movie buffs expected him to be a part of VIP 2 as well. However, much to their surprise, Dhanush roped in Sean Roldan to compose music for the eagerly-awaited sequel.
During a recently held press meet, Dhanush revealed that he chose Sean over Anirudh as he wanted to give a completely fresh feel to the franchise.
“There is going to be a new character called Vasundhara Parameshwaran in the second part, and we thought we have to give a totally different dimension to her and the VIP franchise. So, we wanted to change the three chief technicians (music, edit, DoP), so that the sequel gets a different makeover,” he added.
He went on to add that Anirudh could be roped in to compose music for ‘VIP 3’.
“Once I finish writing the script of VIP3, according to the sensibility, emotions, and mood of that script, I’d choose the music director. If Sean would be suitable, I would go for him. Even Anirudh might compose,” he said.
In case you did not know, ‘VIP 2’ is touted to be an action-comedy and has been directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth. Besides Dhanush, it features Kajol and Amala Paul in the lead. Amala will be reprising her role from the first part. The film will hit screens later this month.
So, will ‘VIP 2’ work at the ticket window? Comments, please!
