The film will be shot in two languages, Telugu and Tamil. The film will go on floors soon. The makers are in talks with Kajol and she is yet to give her nod.

“The entire script was shared with her, followed by a narration. Kajol loved the story and has given her nod to the film verbally. However, there are certain dateissues but the makers are working their schedule around her and she is expected to sign later this month. They are hoping Kajol comes on board soon,” adds the source.

‘VIP 2’ will mark Kajol’s return to Kollywood almost after nineteen years. She last starred in ‘Minsara Kanavu’, directed by Rajeev Menon. The film starring Arvind Swamu in the male lead won four National Awards. It was later dubbed in Hindi as ‘Sapnay’.
