What is it?
There is a saying that opposites attract – and director Aanand L. Rai explores it in his romantic comedy ‘Tanu Weds Manu’,
starring Kangana Ranaut and R. Madhavan.
Madhavan plays Manoj Sharma a.k.a. Manu, a smart, intelligent, but shy NRI who has all the qualities of a good husband. He
loves reading and listening to old songs, but hates loud music and crowded places.
Though he is educated and settled in London, Manu would never do anything against his parents’ will. He is keen to marry a
homely girl, so he comes to India to find a suitable match and meets Tanu a.k.a. Tanuja Trivedi played by Kangana Ranaut
,who is completely opposite of what he is looking for.
Madhavan admits that it has been his toughest role till date.
A beautiful, charming and extrovert girl from Kanpur, Tanu lives life on her own terms and dreams of marrying a guy who her
parents will hate. She is also against arranged marriage and doesn’t like being told what to do and what not to.
She loves to ride bikes, drink alcohol and admires Che Guevara, the Argentine Marxist revolutionary, guerrilla leader and
military theorist who played a prominent role in the Cuban Revolution.
The film follows how two seemingly opposite-natured people end up falling in love with each other.
The movie also stars Jimmy Shergill, Eijaz Khan, Ravi Kishan and Deepak Dobriyal.
The marriage will take place on 25th February 2011.
