VIP 2, starring Dhanush and Kajol in the lead roles, is probably one of the most awaited Tamil films this year. Soundarya Rajinikanth in the director's shoes, Dhanush as the nonchalant Raghuvaran and Bollywood superstar Kajol as the antagonist are enough reasons for making the film an anticipated watch.
