It is a known fact that Salman Khan was instrumental in Kangna Ranaut taking up the quirky character of Payal in ‘Katti Batti’. Relating the incident, Kangna said, “I am glad that he did that. Because at that time, after ‘Queen’, I was flooded with female centric offers and naturally my priority was to do films where I have the central character. I would not have given this film a thought. Salman is a friend and I trust him. I was in New York and he called me to take a look at the script. I felt that I should at least hear it if Salman has said and after listening to it, I immediately said yes.” ‘Katti Batti’ stars Imran Khan opposite the actress.
