Actor-filmmaker Dhanush is still awaiting the release of his upcoming Tamil action-comedy VIP 2 but the star has already announced there will be two more parts to the franchise.
Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, VIP 2 is the sequel to the 2014 Tamil blockbuster VIP which stands for Vellai Illa Patadhaari or 'Graduate without a job', and is expected to release on July 28. The first part outlined the difficulties of a passionate civil engineer who couldn't get the break that he needed in the industry. The movie was well received by the audience.
"It took me three years to write the sequel to VIP, and the process was challenging. It was while shooting for Kodi I struck upon an idea to make VIP 2. The franchise will continue. There will be part 3 and 4," said Dhanush to IANS.
VIP 2 also marks the return of Bollywood actor Kajol to Tamil cinema after two decades. The actor plays a suave and conniving businesswoman in this film.
Commenting on working with Kajol, Dhanush said, "It was fascinating to work with her. When she did her last film (Minsara Kanavu) in Tamil, I was in tenth class. We feel proud she chose to make her comeback with our film."
Dhanush made his directorial debut with Pa Paandi earlier this year.
Overwhelmed with the film's success, he said: "There will be a sequel to Pa Paandi. It's too early to talk about the project but it will be another exciting project."
Apart from VIP 2, Dhanush has superstar Rajinikanth's Tamil gangster drama Kaala which needs his attention. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi, Pankaj Tripathi and Samuthirakani, is being directed by Pa. Ranjith.
Asked if he's playing a cameo in Kaala, Dhanush said: "I'm waiting for an opportunity to work with Rajini sir. I'm awaiting a call from Ranjith for Kaala."
