"Well, you have to give it to Tanu after all. That's because she is someone who can wear a kurta from Kanpur, a skirt from Delhi, a jacket that her uncle has sent to her from London and top it up all with her trademark aviators. I am sure there would be many out there who would be able to identify with Tanu", winks Kangana
While in the Anees Bazmee film she had to play an over the top character, who came across as rather fake, in TANU WEDS MANU it is distinctly visible that she is having a lot of fun. All while she is definitely appearing to be far more relaxed here, there is a sense that one gets that Kangana has let herself go. Is that truly the case?
"Absolutely", pat comes a reply from Kangana, "For quite a few roles that I have done in the past, there is a fair amount of research that I had to do. I had to apply my mind, figure out how that character would behave and in a given situation, how would she react. For Tanu I did not have to do that."
And why was that so? "Well, because we all know girls like Tanu. Especially since I come from the North, I have grown up with people who think like Tanu and also dress up like her. So it was not a role that needed too much research", she says in a matter of fact tone.
An Aanand L Rai film, TANU WEDS MANU releases all over this Friday.
