'I was stuck in edgy/neurotic roles, this film changed the trajectory of my career,' said Kangana Ranaut on Tanu Weds Manu clocking ten years
As Tanu Weds Manu clocks a decade of its release, director Aanand L Rai took to Instagram to share a heartfelt note of gratitude.
Sharing the poster of Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan-starrer Tanu Weds Manu, the filmmaker's note reads, "Someone said so beautifully..."Nothing of me is original, I am the combined effort of everyone I have ever known” Thank you for giving me my identity"
Ranaut, on the other hand, recalled the time when director and writer Himanshu Sharma presented her with the opportunity of playing Tanu. She writes, "I was stuck in edgy/neurotic roles, this film changed the trajectory of my career."
