Tanu Weds Manu: Neetu Chandra Reveals She Was Replaced By Kangana Ranaut On R Madhavan’s Recommendation; Deets INSIDE
Actor Neetu Chandra marked her Bollywood debut in 2005. She started her acting career in the Hindi film industry with the film Garam Masala. She went on to star in a Telugu film later and also featured in a Madhur Bhandarkar film titled Traffic Signal. The actress who has also worked in Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, said that she has been 'removed' from six films. In an interview, apart from being removed from six films, Neetu Chandra revealed she once got replaced by Kangana Ranaut.

 Speaking with Bollywood Hungama, Neetu Chandra revealed that she got replaced by Kangana on R Madhavan’s recommendation in film Tanu Weds Manu. Chandra then recalled a comment made by R Madhavan where he had claimed to have recommended Ranaut for the lead role in the Aanand L Rai film. She said, "I'm talking about Madhavan. He said, 'There was another actress who was signed for Tanu Weds Manu, but I recommended Kangana's name'.” Neetu added, "That actress was me, the one who had signed Tanu Weds Manu earlier."

The Traffic Signal actress said that such things keep happening to her, but added that it is a part of the struggle. She continued, "These kinds of things kept happening. I was removed from six movies in the past. No one would pick up the phone and call me. Neetu had to (make calls) for Neetu. But this is the journey, and this is how I had to learn things." Later, when asked why she did not continue if she had been signed already, the actress said, “How do you continue? Do you think it depends on me if I want to continue the project?” She then said that for any reason if the hero is recommending someone else, she doesn’t come from that sort of background where she can stand her ground. She added, “For any reason, if the director thinks that the hero is recommending somebody else... I don't come from the sort of background where I can (stand my ground). I'm helpless."
