VIP 2 Lalkar: Dhanush-Kajol-starrer gets another name for pan India audience
Ever since the Dhanush-Kajol-starrer Tamil film, Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 aka VIP 2, came into being, fans have been eagerly waiting to catch these two powerhouse performers together.
The movie will have a bilingual release, as reported by india.com. The film's teaser was launched on 7 June. Now, the makers of the film also launched a motion poster on 23 June. With that poster, they also revealed the Hindi version's title.
The Hindi equivalent is named VIP 2 Lalkar; the filmmakers feel a name like this will ensure a pan India viewership. Soundarya Rajinikanth, director of the movie, spoke to IANS as reported by india.com and said, "It was a strategic move to make sure the film reaches across all states. With Kajol and Dhanush coming together in a movie for the first time, the title has to connect with the masses. Both the actors have a huge fan base in the North, so we thought of leveraging it thereby keeping a more relatable and easy name for the audience."
Not much is revealed about the film, except for obvious sequences where Raghuvaran, who plays a civil engineer, once again fights his enemies, much like in the first part. The actor's look is also quite similar to the first film, but the intriguing background score and dialogues make us curious for more. Kajol is reportedly essaying a negative role in the film.
Samuthirakan, Saranya Ponvannan and Amala Paul will once again be seen donning the same characters from the first installment of the movie.
The trailer and audio of the movie will be launched on 25 June. The film is slated to release on 28 July.
