First look: Kajol and Dhanush pose across a pillar in ‘VIP 2’

The first look poster of Kajol and Danush starrer ‘Velaiilla Pattadhari 2’, popular as ‘VIP 2’, has been released. The movie is the sequel of Dhanush’s 2014 hit ‘Velaiilla Pattadhari’ and will be directed by his sister-in-law and Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya.

Soundarya shared two first look posters of the film on Twitter on Saturday, bidding adieu to 2016 and welcoming the new year. She tweeted, “As the year comes to an end and a #NewYear begins's my gift to all #Dhanush fans #VIP2 #FirstLookPosters #TeaKadaiRajasAreBack #2017."    

One poster has Kajol and Dhanush facing each other across a pillar in an under-construction site. The 42-year-old actress is looking hot in a black jumpsuit, while Dhanush is dressed in a white shirt and black pants, and is wearing a safety helmet.

The other poster has Dhanush in a 'Lungi' hanging out with his friends at a tea-stall.

Dhanush, who has reportedly written the story and dialogues for the film, will reprise his role of an engineering graduate from the first film. Amala Paul and Samuthirakani will also reprise their roles in the sequel. The film marks the return of Kajol to Tamil cinema after nearly two decades. She had earlier worked in 1997 film ‘Minsara Kanavu’ which was dubbed in Hindi and released as ‘Sapney’.

It is also Soundarya’s second film as director. She has previously directed her father Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone in India’s first motion capture film ‘Kochadaiiyaan’.

The bilingual project in Tamil and Telugu, will be co-produced by ‘Kabali’ producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu and Dhanush under his banner Wunderbar Films.
