Rai’s Tanu Weds Manu Returns, the sequel of the 2011 blockbuster has shattered all records this year . The film starring Kangana Ranaut and R.Madhavan collected an approximate 62.95 crore nett in India in less than a week,making it 2015’s first bonafide blockbuster.

The film not only opened to rave reviews from the audiences and critics alike but also created a splash at the box office,as it continues to rake in the moolah.
Talking about his lucky streak at the box office says Aanand L Rai, ” It is truly overwhelming and I consider myself blessed . It has been an amazing journey with Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa and now Tanu Weds Manu Returns . Each of these films are extremely close to my heart and a big part of me lies within each one of them. As a filmmaker there can be nothing better than audiences loving a film and being entertained by it”.
