Kangana Ranaut releases the first poster of ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’
Director Aanand L Rai is working on a sequel to his 2011 film Tanu Weds Manu that starred Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan at fast pace to complete its shooting. This is because it will now release on May 29, which is two weeks before the date that was originally planned — June 12.
Kangana Ranaut said, “Releasing the film’s motion poster on my birthday is merely a co-incidence. The film was supposed to release in July but Anand decided to release it by May end now. It was Anand’s decision to release the first look today and celebrate my birthday with you all as we are shooting it here”
“I really appreciate what he does as he is a friend. We both don’t have such intentions. It’s just that we have always celebrated birthday with family and friends and we just got the chance to celebrate our birthday with media,”she said.
“I bagged the script when I had no work in the industry and it turned out to be an unexpected hit. It was a first film of its kind which despite having small-budget became a hit… The film will always be close to my heart as I did the film when I was nobody in the industry but now I am successful,” the ‘Queen’ star said, who feels her sister’s gift (a kanjivaram saree) is the best birthday present.
“The film shows how the characters have grown up in these four years. The new script starts where the last one ends. The only difference is that we have two Kangana this time. The whole unit is like a family to me,” said the director, who is planning to launch the film’s trailer in Mumbai next month. Madhavan, who is returning to Bollywood after a sabbatical of three years, is excited about the project as the film deals with the complexities in relationships in today’s fast pace era.
“The film revolves around the complexities in contemporary relationships. How these smart phones today play a major role in making or breaking a relationship,” he said.
