Kangana Ranaut is known to experiment with different looks for all her films. Now in Tanu Weds Manu 2, she will not only be seen as her double but also in a completely de-glam avatar. This is the first time that Kangs will be seen in a double role.
Says a source, “Kangana loves to don various looks for her films. From playing the mutant Kaya in Krrish 3 to a sweet and simple Delhi girl in her next release Queen, we have seen her in various avatars. When Anand L Rai narrated the Tanu Weds Manu 2 script to her, she got very excited. The story takes off from where TWM ended. Now Kangana (Tanuja or Tanu) and Madhavan (Manoj or Manu) are a married couple but there is a love triangle with Kang’s in it. She will be sporting buck-teeth for this role which is completely different from her glamorous, fashionista image.”
It’s a proper double role; they are not twins or related so Kangana, the director and designer Reza Shariffi wanted a completely different look for the actress. Whether the second Kangs is a negative or positive character will be revealed as the story unfolds.
When quizzed about, it Kangana doesn’t deny that she’s playing a double role but adds simply, “I love to experiment with my looks for all my films and here too I am getting an opportunity to do the same. Though I am very excited about playing two roles in the sequel, it is too early to say anything more right now.”
Tanu Weds Manu 2 is expected to go on floor from April this year and will be shot in various parts of North India and London.
