Tanu Weds Manu Returns star Kangana Ranaut has stepped on the other side of the camera for her upcoming film Katti Batti. She has directed the first seven minutes of Nikhil Advani’s upcoming project, in which she will be sharing screen space with actor Imran Khan.
The Queen actress took cinematographer Tushar Kantiray’s blessings and offered him Re 1 to allow her to use the camera.
“It’s a seven-minute uncut sequence. I had to shoot it by holding the camera in my hands which was the demand of the script. It was nerve-racking, but actors can do anything for a director who shows trust and faith in their abilities. Nikhil (Advani) is one such director,” Kangana said in a statement.
Kal Ho Na Ho director Nikhil Advani is really impressed with the Tanu Weds Manu actress.
“One of my favourite scenes in the film is one in which Kangana’s character is shooting Imran (Khan) playfully with an iPad. I wanted the scene to be authentic and organic so Tushar (Kantiray) suggested that we should allow the actress to shoot it herself,” said Nikhil.
“The lighting was completed, the set was cleared out and Kangana has shot the scene like a pro, adding one more talent to her already overflowing basket,” added the D-Day director.
