In a shocking revelation, actress Neetu Chandra, best known for her roles in films like ‘Traffic Signal’, ‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!’ among others, in an interview said that she was removed from the blockbuster hit film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ and replaced by none other than the lead of the movie Kangana Ranaut. 
Disclosing that she was the first actress to have signed the said film, Neetu added that after actor R Madhavan recommended Kangana’s name, she was replaced. However, there was no mention of Madhavan knowingly doing so.
During her interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Neetu, while referring to an earlier interview recalled that Madhavan had said that “there was another actress cast for Tanu Weds Manu but I recommended Kangana’s name”. 
“That’s how Kangana came in the movie because everybody approved of her but that actress is me who had signed Tanu Weds Manu earlier,” Neetu said. 
She added, “These are the kind of films that kept happening. I was removed from six movies in the past. This is a journey and it is how I had to learn things and reach here.”
Elaborating on why didn’t she continue if she had signed the film, Neetu said, ““How do you continue? Do you think it depends on me? For any reason, the director thinks that if the hero is recommending somebody else, maybe the comfort zone is better. In this industry, I don’t come from a background to push myself like ‘No! I am going to do it!’ I stand at a position where I am helpless. You think I am not helpless? Yes, I am. If you want me to remove from a project, you think I can do anything? No, I can’t. Nobody can do it. There are a lot of actresses who are replaced by others but I think I take it in a way that this was my destiny. I have no complaints.”
For the unversed, ‘Tanu Weds Manu’, released in 2011, directed by Anand L Rai, was a massive hit. It’s popularity paved the way for a sequel which became even a bigger hit than the original. 
Meanwhile actress Neetu Chandra is all set to make her Hollywood in upcoming film ‘Never Back Down: Revolt’.
