At an interactive session at the Velai Illa Pattadhari 2 audio launch in Mumbai, Dhanush said: “The first part and second of Velai Illa Pattadhari has its own similarities and differences. The sequel will have all quirky, family and emotional moments from the first part and at the same time, there is a strong social message as well”.
Dhanush also clarified that Kajol is not an antagonist in VIP 2. “It’s not necessary to label her character as an antagonist, there are basically two characters in the film who believe in their own ideologies”. Kajol on a lighter note said that she initially thought both Dhanush and Soundarya are nice people but only during the shoot, she realized that they troubled her with lengthy Tamil dialogues and the whole experience was like going back to school.
VIP 2’s heroine Amala Paul thanked Dhanush for giving the opportunity. “Thank you Dhanush for not killing my character and retaining in the second part”, smiled Amala Paul, who lauded Soundarya for adding extra energy in the second part.
“It’s very hard to get here in front of all the stars. Thank you Dhanush sir for spreading the good word about my work, he has been a great support and his contribution to VIP 2’s music is exceptional. I should also thank Soundarya, VIP 2 is indeed a big film”, said Sean Roldan, the composer also lauded Anirudh for his amazing music in the first part and said that composing for the sequel was super challenging.
