Kajol ready to act in Malaysian movies if script is good


KUALA LUMPUR: Bollywood actress Kajol, regarded as one of India’s most successful and highest-paid actresses, has not ruled out the possibility of acting in a Malaysian movie if the script was good and interesting.

“My script is my hero and that is more important. Of course, yes, if there are chances,” Kajol, 43, told reporters after launching the teaser of her latest movie Velai Illa Pattadhari 2 (VIP2), the Hindi version, at Jalan Masjid India here tonight.

Kajol was accompanied by her VIP 2 co-star Dhanush Kasthuri Raja and director R Soundarya, the daughter of Tamil film superstar Rajinikanth.

She was greeted by about 2,000 fans who thronged the location since 4pm to get a glimpse of their favourite actress and the rest of the cast.

The crowd roared when Kajol and Dhanush arrived at the location and they went wild when the actor sang the song ‘Valkai Thedi’ to the crowd.

Meanwhile, Malik Streams Corporation managing director Abdul Malik Dasthigeer, who obtained distribution rights of the film in Malaysia, said the distribution and promotion of the film here would encourage more tourists to come to Malaysia.

“This would indirectly increase national revenue with money coming in from overseas,” he said.

Malik, who was the joint producer for Rajnikanth’s movie “Kabali”, said he hoped to encourage more Tamil and Hindi movies to be filmed in Malaysia.

VIP2 which is a sequel to the first film released in 2014, will be screened in three languages – Tamil, Hindi and Telegu in August.
