Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 (VIP 2) will be directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth. Kajol's last Tamil film was Minsara Kanavu opposite Arvind Swamy and Prabhu Deva, which released in 1997. "I am also extremely excited to return to Tamil cinema," said Kajol to PTI.
Last week, the actress shared a picture with her 'new team' on Twitter:

VIP 2 is a sequel to Dhanush's 2014 hit film of the same name and it is Soundarya's second film as director. Dhanush and Soundarya also expressed their excitement over working with Kajol.
On working with Dhanush and Soundarya, Kajol told PTI, "Dhanush is a very fine actor. I haven't seen Soundarya's work but she looks like she knows what she is talking about and we get along very well. So, things will be good."
The film is being co-produced by Dhanush under his banner WunderBar Films. A few days ago, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth took the clapboard to start VIP 2.
Here are few pictures from the event:
Meanwhile, Dhanush is also pepping up for the sequel of Maari and Kajol has a film with Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi.
