UTV and Nikhil Advani’s next Katti Batti to feature Imran Khan and Kangna Ranaut

After films like Dev D, A Wednesday, Barfi!, Kai Po Che and numerous others, UTV Motion Pictures now brings you a unique love story about new age relationships and breaking up and making up in the world of today, the sort of contemporary romantic relationship never before seen on Indian celluloid – Katti Batti. The film will be directed by Nikhil Advani and will bring together Imran Khan and Kangna Ranaut.


“We are very excited to be taking our creative journey on Katti Batti to the next phase. It’s a most unusual love story steeped in the culture and language of today’s relationships. We wanted to make sure that the script gets the right director at the helm and a cast that can justify the two incredibly real, funny and layered lead characters. Our creative team steered the entire project through wonderfully and we are thrilled to have Nikhil, Imran and Kangna on board for the film. We couldn’t have asked for a better director and cast for the film,” said Siddharth Roy Kapur, Managing Director, Disney India.


Director Nikhil Advani says, “UTV spotted a gem of a script with Katti Batti and it was critical that it got the cast that justified it! Am personally elated by this casting combination as it is a dream to work with Kangna – her body of work has not dulled her ability to bring humility to her craft. Imran on the other hand is drawing from new personal experiences and emotions and brings with him as well, a fresh approach.”


Imran Khan, who will be essaying the role of Maddy, says, “I have always wished to be a part of films that make me proud as an actor. Katti Batti will be one such film. My last outing with UTV gave the audiences Delhi Belly, and we have worked together in the past on many successful films like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, I Hate Luv Storys and Ek Main aur Ekk Tu. Now we hope to recreate the magic with Katti Batti. Nikhil Advani is a great story teller and Kangna is one of the finest actors of our generation. I am eagerly waiting to kick start the film!”


Kangna Ranaut who plays the character of Payal in Katti Batti says, “It is a beautiful story. Writers have used elements like the battle of the sexes, issues of urban couples, expanded truth and non linear narrative. We have one of the leading creative studios UTV as the producers and I have worked with them in the past on Fashion and Life in a Metro, two of my most memorable films. I just hope I do justice to this story that might change the perspective of love and love stories for us and for coming generations”.


Katti Batti goes on the floors later this year and is scheduled for a worldwide release in 2015.
