How Nikhil convinced Imran for Katti Batti

‘Delhi Belly’ actor Imran Khan has a release ‘Katti Batti’ coming up after almost two years.

For the latest round of movie promotions, Imran was present for a press conference to talk about the film, a small pause in his career due to his wife’s (Avantika) pregnancy and many more.

Talking about the expectations from the film, “At box office you never know what’s going to happen, so that can’t be a factor in your decision. My priority now is of doing films that I will enjoy to do” he expresses.

Talking about how did Nikhil convince him for the role which he rejected earlier, Imran told media  “Nikhil wanted to let him narrate the story once more. As I was like in a mood, not doing the movie so I thought what difference would it make if he narrates.” He added. “So I kept it delay for one/two months.” He disclosed.

“After so many ifs and buts when Nikhil came for narrating the story, within 20 mins  I wondered if this is the same story I read before.” He told. Imran confessed that the story Nikhil described to him in a completely different angle which he didn’t think when he read.

“I started visualizing the characters and the moments of the story. I’ve been in the situation. It’s like repeating my personal life.” He spoke. Imran also disclosed that at the end of the narrating he apologies to Nikhil for not getting the point of the story.

“I have spend so much time for doing a film. If it does well in box-office then its good but if it doesn’t then if I have not enjoyed making the film, it’s wastage of time. “He says.

“I want to be confident about my work. Waking up with a smile, I want to arrive happily on set.” He said.

Imran & Kangana starrer ‘Katti Batti’ continues to create buzz right from its first trailer that was released.

Directed by Nikhil Advani, Katti Batti is a modern day romance between a shy young architect Madhav Kabra’s (Imran Khan) and free-spirited Payal (Kangana Ranaut). Though they make a perfect couple, a sudden turn of events creates an unanswered distance between them.

The film is slated to release September 18.
