R Madhavan is all praises for Kangana Ranaut, says "She is really an extraordinary actor who brings so much to the roles that she does, I am quite in awe!"

Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan collaborated twice. Tanu Weds Manu, released in 2011, and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, released in 2015, both featured the two in a hit performance. In a recent interview, Madhavan talked about the powerful women in his life and commended Kangana since he included her in that list.

Madhavan is enjoying himself after receiving favourable reviews for his 2022 film, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. Several Hindi and Tamil projects are currently in the works for him. 

In an interview, Madhavan was asked about working with Kangana and how he saw her success since she too was a 'fighter'. The actor said, “If you look at all the leading ladies of all my films, they are very very strong. I had a good fortune of growing up with some really strong women in my house itself. My mother was manager of a bank in Bihar for 30 years. So you see how strong women are. I think they are the stronger species. They last much longer. If you look at your grandparents, I can promise you that today your grandfather would be actually relying more on your grandmother than vice versa. That's a universal truth that all men have to reconcile with.”

Moving on to talk about Kangana Ranaut, he said, “Working with the likes of Kangana or Shalini or all the strong women that I had the good fortune to work with, they were all women with opinion. They are not pushovers. They are not the cliché heroines, who come in and dance in a couple of movies and get slapped by the man and walk away. These are not the kind of films I have ever done or want to do in my life. People who indulge in those kind of stories are really foolish in today's world. But to recognise the strength that they bring on to the screen because of their personal achievements as well as their experience and their ability to act is very important. I am giving Kangana the due credit for it, it is extremely smart and important for all of us. She is really an extraordinary actor who brings so much to the roles that she does. And look at what she is doing today across all genres of films, I am quite in awe.”
