Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan has sent two letters and two bouquets to Kangana – one for ‘Tanu’ and the other for ‘Datto’, Kangana’s two characters in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Kangana has said that Big B had sent her a letter for Queen too but that was written in high-end English that he himself speaks. She adds that this time, he has written a poem in Hindi, so she could read it out as is to her parents as they understand only Hindi.
She adds that she felt like his two letters were her two medals and that she is going to frame these and keep them for life as her memory. She further reasoned that since her parents, who are not artistes, don’t understand performance, this is their proof that she has performed. Divulging the content of the letter, Kangana has been quoted in the report as saying that Mr Bachchan has written about the minutest of details of her performance which makes it very fulfilling for an artiste, coming from a legend like him.
Big B’s letter reads, “It happens very rarely that our eyes fill up watching a performance. You made me cry.” He wrote for Datto, “For the girl who is Tanu’s lookalike called Datto, I don’t know her but please extend my warm wishes to her.” Kangana further adds that What broke her down reading his letters was when he wrote, “Main apne aap ko bhagyashali samajhta hoon, ki main uss udyog se juda hoon, jisme Kangana basti hai!” (I feel fortunate to be a part of an industry of which Kangana is also a part). She explains that being an outsider, she was ridiculed for the longest time with people openly making fun of her. But she asserts that the flowers Mr Bachchan sent have not just filled up her room, but also left her overwhelmed.
