The return of Kangana as Tanu and a twin avatar Datto, made on a modest budget of Rs 30 crore, has left Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ Director Aanand L. Rai very happy and content.
The opening weekend collections have been pegged at around Rs 40 crore. Will it be able to garner Rs 100-crore?
Released on May 22 and also starring R. Madhavan as Kangana’s husband, the movie is winning huge appreciation for its entertainment value. Its opening collection was of Rs 8.85 crore.
Amazingly, it took a drastic jump on Saturday and Sunday, minting Rs 13.20 crore and Rs 16.10 crore, thus taking its weekend total to Rs 38.10 crore.
Most of the sequels have not entertained viewers and have proved to be a flop at the box office, but “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” is turning out to be an exception.
“I am feeling relieved. There was a pressure with the sequel, but I’m overwhelmed with the kind of response that I have received for this film. It is the small characters in the film who have played a pivotal role. I always feel each and every character in the film is extremely important,” says the Director.
Such and inspiration, and the rare ability to just purely ENTERTAIN !!! Ufff loved Kangna in TWMR.. Wohoooo to girl power;) superbbbb !!!!
