Samantha Ruth Prabhu has bagged yet another major role. The latest news is that the actress will star alongside Dhanush in his next project with "VIP" team.

The news was shared by Dhanush through twitter and he also posted a photo of himself, Anirudh Ravichander and Samantha. 

"Team VIP Welcomes @Samanthaprabhu2 on board :) shoot from feb 2015," tweeted Dhanush.

The actor had earlier announced that the team of "VIP" ("Velay Illa Pattathari") is coming together again for a new movie and said that the title of the movie will be announced soon.

He later shared that Amy Jackson will be part of the movie and will play the lead opposite him. Meanwhile, the latest update has baffled the audience as it is not really clear whether Samantha has replaced Amy or whether both Samantha and Amy are a part of the movie.

The shooting of the movie is scheduled to begin by 6 February, 2015 and the sound track of the movie will be done by Anirudh. 

This is Samantha's first movie with Dhanush and looks like the talented pair will be a delight to watch. The actress' last Tamil movie was AR Murugadoss directorial "Kaththi" starring Vijay. The movie was a massive hit and one of the biggest grossers of the year in Tamil. The actress is now busy with the filming of "10 Endrakulla" with Vikram.

For Dhanush "VIP" was his 25th movie and the actor is now awaiting the release of his Hindi movie "Shamithabh" and Tamil movies "Anegan" and "Vai Rah Vai" (cameo appearance). He is presently busy with the shooting of "Maari".

Meanwhile, "VIP" which was released on 18 July was a huge hit and got positive response from both audience and critics. The film, which also starred Amala Paul, was directed by Velraj and produced by Dhanush.
