Prior to the release date of the much-anticipated film, 'Katti Batti', a special screening of the Kangana Ranaut-Imran Khan starrer was held in Mumbai on Thursday (September 17).

The fiery Kangana Ranaut, who plays the role of a fashion designer in 'Katti Batti', was cute in a casual black dress with flip-flops. She carried off her geek chic look in a pair of glasses and left her cascading curls free. The actress has been grabbing headlines for her outspoken statements, but she is not pleased. "I get annoyed but that doesn’t last long… sometimes your nice, little statement is taken as a very rude and shocking headline. In my heart, I’m just that mountain girl, who speaks her heart and doesn’t have any agenda and motive," said Kangana.

Kangana's co-star Imran Khan was dapper in formal attire. The actor who will be seen on the big screen after a break said, "Every hit film that I have done in my career has been made by a first-time director. When I have worked with established directors, those films have not worked."

Sonam Kapoor was a beautiful sight as she arrived all decked up in a pale coloured churridar with a matching potli. A neat bun, mojris and jhumkas finished off her look. After the screening last night, Sonam wished the 'Katti Batti' team luck for their release. "Break a leg to the #KattiBatti team! #imran #kangana @nickadvani !!," tweeted Sonam.

Richa Chadda put together an interesting outfit for the movie night - a graphic printed tee shirt, black leather skirt and white sneakers. The actress was last seen in the much-acclaimed 'Masaan', garnering her immense praise for her performance.

Another familiar face at the 'Katti Batti' screening was none other than Aditi Rao Hydari. The actress was chic in a white H&M dress with enviable gladiator sandals. A sling bag and neutral makeup finished off her look. She too had good wishes for the 'Katti Batti' team - "Biiiiiiiiiig luck and love @nickadvani for #KattiBatti.... Made me smile through my tears...And can we have multiple copies of maddy pl?!"

Imran Khan gives his director Nikhil Advani the 'eyebrow'. Imran's uncle, Aamir Khan had quite a few suggestions for Nikhil's 'Katti Batti' and we hear that the director entertained most of them including making the film less emotional.

Not many are aware that 'Katti Batti' was initially titled, 'Saali Kutiya'. When asked Nikhil Advani about the change in the title, he said, ‘Saali Kutiya’, as a title was way too gimmicky and was not necessary at all keeping in mind the flow of the story and its premises.

Kangana Ranaut has been facing back-to-back successes with her last few releases. The actress was recently in Paris for the French release of her film, 'Queen'. We hear she stated that her character in 'Katti Batti' is one of the toughest role that she has played.
