After comparing herself to Hollywood stars, Meryl Streep and Gal Gadot, Kangana Ranaut now claims that she is the only actor after Sridevi to take on comic roles.

On Thursday, Tanu Weds Manu clocked a decade since its release. To mark the occasion, Ranaut posted, “I was stuck in edgy, neurotic roles, this film changed the trajectory of my career. It was my entry into the mainstream that too with a comedy.” She added that Queen (2014) strengthened her comic timing “and I became the only actress after legendary Srideviji to do comedy.”
In a separate tweet, the actress mentioned how the Aanand L. Rai directorial film contributed in shaping her career.
“Thanks to @aanandlrai and our writer Himanshu Sharma for this franchise, when they came to me as struggling makers I thought I can make their careers but instead they made my career, one can never tell which film will work and which won’t, all destiny, glad my destiny has you,” the actress wrote.
Written by Himanshu Sharma, the film also features R Madhavan, Jimmy Sheirgill, Swara Bhasker and Deepak Dobriyal in key roles.
Director Rai, too, took to Instagram to celebrate 10 years of his film’s release. He wrote: “Someone said so beautifully…Nothing of me is original, I am the combined effort of everyone I have ever known. Thank you for giving me my identity Thank you for making me Woh Tanu weds Manu wala Aanand Rai. Thank you.”
