Aanand L Rai’s “Tanu Weds Manu Returns“, starring Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan, will now release on May 22 instead of May 29.
Produced by Eros International & Colour Yellow Productions, the film, a sequel to the 2011 hit of the same name, has completed within its schedule so the makers decided to prepone its theatrical run by a week.
“While it was decided that ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ would release on May 29, the schedule was completed earlier than planned. The makers are happy with the way the film has shaped up and believe that it is ready for audiences to enjoy.
“Additionally, preponing the film’s release to a week earlier allows them to have a better run at the B/O, owing to the fact that the next big ticket release will happen in June,” said a source.
The trailer was also shared on Twitter:

According to a report published in India Today, director Aanand L Rai doesn’t have a problem with the preponement. He was quoted as saying, “I think Eros has a packed year in 2015. They are also the overseas distributors of Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do which opens on June 5. So they probably wanted to avoid any clash of interest.I am okay with the pre-ponement.”
