Kangana Ranaut, who has emerged as the ‘Queen’ of female-oriented movies, is now set to impress the audience with her modern-day free-spirited bohemian avatar in Katti Batti. Having unveiled the film’s trailer, the actress managed to keep the mystery alive about its narrative and her character.

The trailer of the movie, which also stars Imran Khan, was unveiled in Mumbai on Sunday.

The movie’s trailer depicts Kangana’s character as someone who doesn’t believe in love and instead chooses to be in a live-in relationship, she said. Her character even goes on to say that she is open to having a “timepass” affair with Imran Khan, who is paired opposite her in the movie, she said.

“When you date, marriage is not on your mind since first you don’t have an understanding of the equation or the relationship. However, I am very open to ‘timepass’ romance,” Kangana told reporters .

Kangana said she is also open to the idea of a live-in relationship.

“To each its own. I think it is about how that person makes you feel. If there is trust and faith, then go ahead and take the relationship to the next level,” she said.

Katti Batti will see Imran playing the role of a young architect, Madhav Kabra, and Kangana as the free-spirited Payal.

Dropping more hints about the film, Kangana said: “It’s not about pregnancy... I don’t play a double role, I don’t play a Punjabi girl, I don’t play an NRI, nor do I get bored in the film... so no such things. There is no genre. The beauty of the film is that it is very intriguing. Revealing too much right now will take away the fun and we really don’t want to take that away.”

With back-to-back hits like Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Kangana has proved how strong she is at the box office.

“It (Katti Batti) is a love story but both (Imran and I) of us have equally important parts. Imran has more screen time than me, but that doesn’t mean one particular character is weak,” she said.

Kangana was all praise for her co-star Imran, with whom she shares screen space for the first time.

“Imran is a delight to work with. He is always balanced. He never loses his cool. He is very calm. He will be shouting at one moment and the next moment he is giggling,” she said.

The film is directed by Nikhil Advani and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur. It is set to release on September 18. IANS, PTI
