I was lied upon saying that you don't have to speak in Tamil: Kajol
Actress Kajol, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, VIP 2, revealed that her co-star Dhanush and director Soundarya lied to her saying that she doesn’t have to speak Tamil and then gave her lots of dialogues. She also thanked both of them for breaking her language barrier in VIP 2. The trailer of the film was recently launched by filmmaker R. Balki and director Anand L. Rai.
"I thank them as they broke this myth which was in my head that I can't speak in another language and I can't act in another language. Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 has been one of the most professional experience and the credit goes to Dhanush and Soundary," Kajol told the media at the trailer and music launch of the film here on Sunday.
"I was lied upon saying that you don't have to speak in Tamil. They proved me wrong the first day because they gave me a long script with two scenes and huge dialogues. They said at least try," she added.
Asked if she was headed towards southern cinema because she was not getting offers in Bollywood, she said: "I always look forward for good script. It doesn't mean I haven't got good script in Hindi. It was just that I loved this one."
Denying plans on wearing a director's hat in the near future, Kajol says she loves acting.
The event also saw Dhanush, Soundaryaa Rajnikanth, Lata Rajnikanth, Kalappuli Thanu(producer), Amala Paul and Rakesh Omprakash Mehra while actresses Taapsee Pannu, Huma Qureshi came later.
Directed by Soundarya Rajnikanth, VIP 2 or Lalkar is an upcoming bilingual action-comedy-drama film. The film is slated to release on July 28.
