In the year that will see the return of many sequels, it appears that producers Vinod Bachchan and Shailesh Singh have decided to resolve their differences to make the sequel to their original romcom film, Tanu Weds Manu. It is understood that there will be some changes for the project, which producers say will be more a prequel telling the story of Tanu before the events of Tanu Weds Manu.
Commenting on this new headway, Vinod Bachchan says, “We are already through with a rough draft of the film, which would be more of a ‘prequel’ than a sequel, since it would tell the story of Tanu before what we’ve seen of her in Tanu Weds Manu.”
It is rumoured that there were professional differences between Kangna Ranaut and Madhavan from the original cast, with sources claiming they did not have a positive working relationship. It is believed this has led to Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma being considered for the lead roles.
Vinod Bachchan did not comment on the casting of the film, but added “We will be starting work on the project once my film, Zila Ghaziabad releases on February 22. The film will be set in Lucknow and Kanpur and will also be shot in Delhi.”
In the meantime Imran and Anushka are set for their release of Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola this week, but with what seems like a highly successful pairing, we are sure Matru and Bijlee will be a good addition to the Tanu Weds Manu team.
