Actor Dhanush has confirmed that his forthcoming Tamil action-drama VIP 2 (Vela Iilla Pattadhari 2) will hit the screens on August 11. The film was initially slated to release on 28 July, which was also Dhanush's birthday, but the release was postponed to August. Reportedly, the makers wanted to release the Telugu and the Hindi-dubbed version simultaneously, causing the delay.
A sequel to 2014 Tamil blockbuster Vela Illa Pattathari, the film has been directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth while the story and screenplay is by Dhanush.
The film marks the return of Kajol to Kollywood after two decades, where she plays the role of a suave and conniving businesswoman named Vasundhara Parameshwaran.
Although Dhanush shared the release date of the film's Tamil version on Twitter, he didn't confirm whether the dubbed Telugu and Hindi versions will also release on August 11.
Jointly produced by Dhanush and Kalaipuli S Thanu, the film also stars Samuthirakani, Vivekh and Amala Paul.
