The two and a half minute trailer introduces us to Raghuvaran, a jobless graduate, played by Dhanush, and it looks like an extension of his own character from the first part.
Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, the film is about the face-off between Dhanush and Kajol, who plays a suave, conniving businesswoman. The film, slated for July 28 release, also stars Amala Paul, Samuthirakani, and Vivek.
VIP 2 marks the comeback of Kajol after two decades to Tamil filmdom. Produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu, the film has music by Sean Roldan.
Kajol spoke about the movie at the launch. She said, “It was like boarding school all over again. I did not want to go to school. So Dhanush and Soundarya came home and they lied through their teeth. They said, you will not have to speak Tamil at all. So I believed them because I am a good person. They proved it all wrong on the first day itself because I got this long script with huge dialogs and I did not know what to do. So I thought, let me at least try. So they broke a lot of barriers in my head and I thank them for that.”
