KANGANA RANAUT and R.MADHAVAN


After playing a series of heavy duty roles in movies like RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES, FASHION, LIFE IN A...METRO, WOH LAMHE and GANGSTER, Kangana Ranaut would finally be seen smiling. She has signed TANU WEDS MANU, a light hearted film, where she is paired opposite R. Madhavan. This unconventional pairing has been brought together by Aanand L Rai who has earlier directed a thriller STRANGERS [Jimmy Sheirgill, Kay Kay Menon].

"It was after much deliberation that Kangna was finalized for the role", says Aanand who has been a known name in the television circuit before films came calling, "The character that Kangna would be playing in TANU WEDS MANU is such that it as of paramount importance to get the casting right."

CHECK OUT: Kangana can't stop being in love

In the past, Kangna has mainly played troubled characters. While she was haunted by ghosts in RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES, FASHION had her playing a supermodel who fell to drugs and abuse. LIFE IN A... METRO showed her in a turbulent affair with a much married boss (Kay Kay Menon), WOH LAMHE had her play a schizophrenic while in GANGSTER she played an alcoholic mall to a gangster (Shiney Ahuja).

"Yes, I have studied her filmography quite closely and I know for sure that TANU WEDS MANU would finally showcase Kangna in a different light. There is a definite humour to the film which thankfully is poles apart from life v/s death roles that Kangna has played in the past", smiles Aanand.

Detailing the reason behind finalising Kangna, Aanand says, "When I was narrating the film to her, she came across as someone who was very passionate and energetic when it came to films. Moreover, what worked for me was the fact that she was taking a personal view on the subject. Now that's the kind of girl I wanted for the film since I wanted her to add something of her own to the character as well."
