He admitted to being unaware that this film would mark his last appearance in front of the camera. Two years had passed since his last film, and the weight of delivering a successful project hung heavily over him. Sharing a slew of unseen pictures he wrote, "I've been dragging my feet as I got closer to posting Katti Batti. When we started shooting, I had no idea that it would be my last time facing the camera; I did know that it had been two years since my last outing, and the pressure to deliver a successful film was huge. Our first schedule took us to Flame University Pune, where the students and faculty welcomed us with open arms and allowed us to basically take over the campus for our shoot! It was a lot of fun, and really helped to establish the chemistry between the cast."

He then continued saying, "And what a great cast we had, there were so many talented people on set. Director @nikkhiladvani impressed me with his deft and seemingly effortless style of management. @kanganaranaut impressed everyone with her dedication to realism, diving deep into medical research for her character's illness. @mipalkarofficial was so endearing that I still instinctively think of her as my little sister! And my onscreen bestie @sahabime is now part of my offscreen family."

"Katti Batti" is a film that could be easily dismissed due to its somewhat far-fetched premise. He further said, "It's easy to dismiss Katti Batti, because the premise is kind of far-fetched; a dying girl, desperate to shield the guy she loves from being hurt, orchestrates a massive lie to cover up her illness. Realistic? Maybe not. But there was something about Madhav that spoke to me. I saw him as an old-fashioned romantic, a guy who knows his heart. Surrounded by people who are concealing the truth and trying to gaslight him, his love for Payal is unshakeable; even as the world around him starts to crumble, he holds his course, following his North Star. He wants every second of time he can have with the one he loves. I poured my heart into Maddy, hoping that his strength of conviction would resonate with viewers. And I think my heart broke a little bit when the film bombed immediately upon release."


The actor poured his heart into portraying Maddy, hoping that his character's unwavering love would resonate with the audience. However, the film faced disappointment as it failed to meet expectations upon its immediate release.

Imran Khan's last appearance in Bollywood dates back to the 2015 romantic comedy "Katti Batti." Subsequently, he chose to step away from the film industry. However, there have been reports suggesting that Khan is contemplating a comeback with the director of "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na," Abbas Tyrewala.
