Q. VIP was a huge success at the box office. What are your expectations from its sequel, VIP2?

A. Definitely the same kind of box office numbers, maybe more. VIP means unemployed graduate. The film got a lot of love from people because it dealt with day to day problems. The life can still be beautiful if you believe in the basic essence of life which means love. I am hoping for the same kind of love for VIP 2 also.

Q. VIP was made only in the Tamil language whereas its second installment is coming up in Hindi as well. What made you make the movie in both the language?

A. When we made the film (VIP), we didn’t know it would become such a huge blockbuster. Of course, we hoped for it, though. Once that happened, initially we wanted to do the second part is Tamil and Telugu. But then when Kajol ma’am came into the picture and since I am known here a little and she is a star in Hindi market, we thought why not explore the Hindi market as well.

Q. Is the movie a proper sequel to its predecessor or it's a completely new story?

A. It is a proper sequel to VIP. The movie has started from where VIP ends. It’s a tale about a simple man and his ordinary world where he wants to be an engineer and waits till he gets his desired job. He doesn’t hop onto anything that is offered to him, but decides to work only what he desired to. Here, his humble world collides with an empress of the corporate world. Both of them have their own principles and ideologies and that’s where the narrative moves forward.

Q. How was it like to work with Kajol?

A. It was fascinating. I have grown up watching Kajol ma’am's films and it’s been a pleasure working with her. Who has not seen Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge? She is such a fine, talented and seasoned performer that her performance helped me do my job better.

Q. How did you come about casting her in the film?

A. Once I finished writing the film with Vasundhara all that came to my mind was somebody like Kajol ma’am, just somebody who is like her. And one day I was like 'why not her?'. I mean, we were aware that she hasn’t done any film in another language in the last 20 years but I just wanted to give a thin chance. We just approached her
