‘Tanu Weds Manu returns’ is the sequel to the hit ‘Tanu weds Manu’ and is expected by the makers to be a runaway hit. It is directed by Anand L. Rai and produced by Anand L. Rai and Kishore Lulla.

The dates for release have been finalized to 12th June, 2015.
It is a romantic Bollywood comedy movie and is sequel to the hit 2011 movie. The leading actors of the movie reprise their characters from their original movie. The other actors sharing the credits include Jimmy Shergill, Deepak Dobriyal, Swara Bhaskar, Md. Zeeshan Ayyub and Dhanush in cameo role.
Getting positive response to the original version in February, 2011, it was decided by the team to make a sequel to carrying the story forward and show the couple’s later stage in life. Both Kangana and Madhavan had expressed their interest to become part of the proposed sequel. It was in September, 2011 that Sunil Lulla had engaged Anand L. Rai to direct the film’s second part and had it titled as ‘Tanu Weds Manu: Season Two’. Previous reports had claimed that led actors would be noticed in dual roles. Also it was speculated that Shahid Kapoor might replace Madhavan. However, in 2012 January, this project got postponed since Anand Rai was busy with another venture called Raanjhana, while makers were eager to have Ranaut to complete her other commitments with Krrish, since the sequel required a very different look.
Other rumors like Anushka Sharma and Imran Khan replacing the original cast were all turned down by Anand Rai. Fans can now eagerly look forwards to enjoy the movie once it hits the theatres.
