There is no denying Kangana Ranaut’s place as Bollywood’s reigning Queen and there is no doubt on her ability to dive deep into her character and feel its every emotion. And she continues going down that path with even more gusto for the character of Payal in Nikhil Advani’s Katti Batti so much so that she needed to take a retreat after shooting the major chunk of the intense scenes.
An insider source said, “Katti Batti is far from being a fluffy and superficial rom-com. The trailer has received a thunderous response from everyone, in the industry and audiences. It’s actually an intense love story with a certain ease. This, by Kangana’s own admission, has been one of her most challenging roles and it had a large chunk of scenes that were performance-focused yet extremely emotionally draining. After she finished shooting the intense chunks, she decided to take a 10 day break for a Yoga Retreat in an undisclosed location in Kerala before her next schedule. She needed to detach herself from Payal’s experiences and needed to get back to herself without any disturbances. She didn’t carry her phones or laptops and closed herself out from everyone for ten days just to realign her energies and ease herself out.”
