Dhanush is on a roll here. After delivering three back to back hits with VIP, he is back with his upcoming Tamil outing, which is tentatively titled “VIP 2”, will hit the screens on Diwali. “If all goes as planned, ‘VIP 2’ will release during Diwali.
There’s a lot of shuffling of release dates of star-studded films, so a lot depends on the release of these films that are slated to hit the screens before ‘VIP 2’,” a source says. Being directed by Velraj, who helmed “VIP”, the film also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Amy Jackson in lead roles. Produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films.
Dhanush is currently shooting for filmmaker Prabhu Solomon’s yet-untitled Tamil action-drama in which he plays a pantry worker. Next year, he will be seen playing a gangster in Vetrimaaran’s two-part film “Vada Chennai”. He also has a yet-untitled political thriller with director R.S. Durai Senthil Kumar. In Bollywood, Dhanush is expected to team up with “Ranjhanaa” director Anand L. Rai again.
As the VIP went on to be blockbuster, and Dhanush followed it up with success of Anegan and Maari, the expectations from VIP 2 is bound to be sky high. Music director Anirudh Ravichander, who has given wonderful scores for Dhanush’s previous films, has composed tunes for VIP 2.
