Actress 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 directorial, in which she will be seen with Imran Khan.
Kangana took cinematographer Tushar’s blessing and gave him Re.1 to allow her to use the camera.
It was shot in one take.
“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 his actor’s abilities. Nikhil is one such director,” Kangana said in a statement.
Advani is really impressed with Kangana.
“One of my favourite scenes in the film is one in which Kangana’s character is shooting Imran playfully with an iPad. I wanted the scene to be authentic and organic so Tushar suggested that we should allow Kangana to shoot it herself.
“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,” Advani said.
