New Delhi, Aug 27 (IANS) While many were expecting another romantic comedy from Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut after the hugely successful “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”, she says her forthcoming film “Katti Batti” is an “intense” film, which does not focus on “live-in relationships at all”.
“‘Katti Batti’ is not based on live-in relationships at all. People are assuming many things about this film. Live in is one of the stages that the lead pair are going through and probably it is a part of the film for three minutes that too is through a song. So, ‘Katti Batti’ is not about live-in and I myself don’t know anything about live-in so it’s better I shouldn’t say anything on it,” Kangana, who was here on Thursday to promote the film, told IANS.
The actress also said that she played the “most intense character” of her career in the Nikhil Advani directorial.
“This has been the most intense character I have ever played. The promos and songs of ‘Katti Batti’ don’t give the idea about the intensity that the film carries. I suggested to the makers if we can take out promos that can tell the kind of depth and intensity that ‘Katti Batti’ holds, but they didn’t take any of my advice and everything looks happy go lucky. But ‘Katti Batti’ is a very intense film,” she said.
The actress also said that her character in the film is a “revelation”.
“Payal, my character in the film is going to be a revelation for me. This character has changed me forever. I’ll never get to play such type of an intense character in my whole life,” she added.
The film, which marks the return of actor Imran Khan after a hiatus of almost two years, is based on new age relationships. The story of the film starts like a romantic comedy but turns into a thriller with a mystery element and a mature love story.
“‘Katti Batti’ is going to be very cathartic for people who like larger than life love stories like ‘The Notebook’, ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ or ‘Titanic’, which leaves you lost but doesn’t leave you with the feeling of lost,” Kangana, who received a National Award for her lead role in “Queen” earlier this year, said.
“Katti Batti” is slated to release on September 18.
