Actress Monal Gajjar, who rose to fame with Allari Naresh’s Sudigadu, will be playing a key role in Dhanush’s upcoming film VIP 2, a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. The film stars Kajol in a key role and is a sequel to the hit film of the same name. Amala Paul reprises her role from the original while Surbhi and Amitash Pradhan who played key roles in the original, aren’t in this film.
“Monal’s character will be very similar to what Surbhi played in the original. It has been penned on the same lines and she will be someone who changes the course of the protagonist’s life,” says a source, adding, “She has begun shooting for the film.” To be directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, the film will be an action drama.
