The first trailer of VIP 2 (Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2) was launched on Sunday, 25 June, evening. The makers organised a grand event in Chennai which was graced by the entire team of the Tamil flick.

The trailer gives an outline of the story of VIP 2. The clip begins with Raghuvaran, an unemployed, being reproached by his father (Samuthirakani) for not finding a job. The clip portrays the frustration of a jobless graduate when people request him to help with their household chores.

The video gives us a glimpse of his life with Shalini (Amala Paul) post marriage. Also, it shows the hurdles he faces after landing his dream job and the subsequent clash with a corporate company owner played by Bollywood actress Kajol.

The trailer seems to have all the ingredients of the first instalment. The only significant change is the antagonist whose role is essayed by Kajol.
