Released on May 21st, 2015; ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ continued the story of Tanu Weds Manu (2011), which portrayed the life and love story of Manu (Madhavan) and Tanu (Kangana).
From the critics’ words of mouth, the entire creation of Anand is fabulous but Kangana deserves special mention for her first-time double role onscreen performance. She was seen as Tanu (old as she was in prequel) and Datto (a pure Hayanvi character).
In ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’, the couple first separates then brought together by Datto.
On the other hand, ‘Prem Rog’ starred Rishi Kapoor, who falls in love with a widow of a higher caste. It was directed by Raj Kapoor.
In 2015, the veteran personality Rishi Kapoor will be seen in ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi Movie’ featuring Paresh Rawal and Vir Das. Its release is expected to be around September or in the end of August.
