Kangana Ranaut has recently 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].

However, not many are aware that Kangna wasn't the only choice for the film. Konkona Sen Sharma was the hot contender for the role before the age old Bollywood issue of 'dates problem' threw a spanner in Aanand's plans.

''There were genuine date issues due to which Konkona couldn't come on board'', states Aanand, ''We are looking at shooting the film in the months of September, October and November but she is unavailable then. However, I am happy about Kangna now being signed for the film since she and Madhavan coming together would be really special for the film.''

Meanwhile Madahavan, who plays Manu in the film, is all excited about beginning shoot for the film. ''Aanand is my kind of director because for him what holds utmost importance is a concrete storyline. I was simply blown with what Aanand narrated to me around TANU WEDS MANU and had no hesitation signing the film'', he says.

''After working on STRANGERS, it is nice to be working on a light hearted entertainer with a sensitive love story at its heart'', says Aanand, ''The film has an interesting soul while going well with the commercial aspects of things. I would be travelling across my locations through next few days and begin shooting in September.''

To be shot in a major way in North India, mainly in the cities of Lucknow, Kanpur, Faridkot, Patiala and Delhi, TANU WEDS MANU would be backed by a big corporate house, the identity of which is currently not being disclosed. ''There should be an official announcement around these details before August end'', concludes Aanand.
