At the grand audio launch of Dhanush’s VIP 2 in Mumbai on Sunday, the film’s trailer was released and going by the unanimous response, one could sense heavy hangover of the first part.
It’s as though Dhanush and his sister-in-law Soundarya Rajinikanth, who has directed the film, decided to make VIP all over again with a slightly different cast.
In VIP, Dhanush played a jobless graduate who takes on a corporate giant and going by the trailer of the sequel, the story isn’t any different and that has left some of the actor’s fans disappointed.
VIP 2 marks the return of actress Kajol to Kollywood nearly after two decades. Last seen in Arvind Swami starrer Minsara Kanavu, she’s playing a character with negative shades in VIP 2, which is jointly produced by Dhanush and Kalaipuli S. Thanu.
The teaser of VIP 2 released earlier this month totally ignored Kajol, but she steals the limelight in the trailer. Playing a suave and conniving business woman called Vasundhara, her face-off with Dhanush is definitely going to be the biggest highlight of the film and it is quite evident in the trailer. However, a section of the audience felt her character is very similar to Vijayashanti’s role from Rajinikanth’s Mannan.
VIP 2, which will also be dubbed in Telugu, will be Dhanush’s second release of the year and it will hit the screens on his birthday on July 28. The film also stars Amala Paul, Samuthirakani and Vivekh in key roles.
