Salman Khan had referred Kangana Ranaut for "Katti Batti", which also features Imran Khan. He personally called up Kangana to suggest her to take up the film.
"Salman didn't have to convince me but he called me to tell me about the script of 'Katti Batti'. I am glad that he did that because after 'Queen', I was flooded with offers for women-centric films and I was giving them priority as well. I don't think I would have given it a thought," Mid-Day quoted Kangana as saying when she was asked about how Salman convinced her to take up "Katti Batti".
"When he asked me to hear the script of 'Katti Batti', I agreed. And after hearing the script, in a second I said yes," added Kangana.
The actress was highly praised for her role as Tanuja in the movie, "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" and while Kangana's role as Payal in "Katti Batti" is also of a bold and open-minded girl, she claims that Payal is very different from Tanuja.
"Nobody is like Tanuja Trivedi in this whole world. Payal's character is a different character. Her life is not that exciting as Tanuja's. But yes, she is one of those people who I identify with. She looks very strong and bold from outside but from inside she is very soft and emotional. Payal is a very cute character but completely misunderstood," stated Kangana, describing her character in "Katti Batti".
Directed by Nikhil Advani and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, "Katti Batti" will hit screens on 18 September.
