VIP 2, starring Dhanush and Kajol in the lead roles, is probably one of the most awaited Tamil films this year. Actor Dhanush on Tuesday confirmed that the movie will hit the screens on August 11.
The makers of the movie were trying to fix a release date for a very long time and now Dhanush has put a rest to all the rumours and revealed the released date that they have zeroed in.
Dhanush tweeted the new teaser of the film to announce the release date. Take a look:
The teaser highlights Kajol’s glamorous-cum-corporate look as a business magnate and shows Dhanush’s character Raghuvaran. Other actors in the movie include Samuthirakan, Saranya Ponvannan and Amala Paul who will reprise their characters from the original film.VIP 2 was previously expected to hit screens on Dhanush’s birthday – July 28 – but director Soundarya Rajinikanth had the film rescheduled citing inevitable reasons. Just a few days ahead of the previous release date, Soundarya announced the film has been postponed to the first half of August in a tweet along with an apology of sorts.
