Tanu Weds Manu starring R Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut went onto become a riot. The follow-up was equally positively received by the audience. While the actress went onto win National Awards for her performance in both the films, it seems like she wasn’t the first choice for the role.
Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, actress Neetu Chandra said that she was first signed for the film and that it was R Madhavan who had suggested Kangana Ranaut’s name. Referring to an earlier interview, she said, “Madhavan had said that there was another actress cast for Tanu Weds Manu but I recommended Kangana’s name. That’s how Kangana came in the movie because everybody approved of her but that actress is me who had signed Tanu Weds Manu earlier. These are the kind of films that kept happening. I was removed from six movies in the past. This is a journey and it is how I had to learn things and reach here.”
Directed by Aanand L Rai, both films had R Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut in the lead roles with Deepak Dobriyal, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, Swara Bhasker in pivotal roles.
