Tanu Weds Manu and Tanu Weds Manu Return, both the films gave Kangana Ranaut a boost in her career. But well, she wasn’t the first choice for the film.
Neetu Chandra, known for her performances in films like Trafic Signal and Oye Lucky Lucky Oye, was supposed to star in the film, and this has been revealed by Neetu herself.
While talking to Bollywood Hungama, Neetu said, “I’m talking about Madhavan. He said, ‘There was another actress who was signed for Tanu Weds Manu, but I recommended Kangana’s name’. That actress was me, the one who had signed Tanu Weds Manu earlier.”
She added, “These kinds of things kept happening. I was removed from six movies in the past. No one would pick up the phone and call me. Neetu had to (make calls) for Neetu. But this is the journey, and this is how I had to learn things.”
Well, Kangana was perfect as Tanu and now, it is difficult to imagine any other actress in the role.
