The stellar performers, Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut were last seen together romantically inclined in Queen have something completely contrasting to offer us on the big screen this year. Both Kangana and Rajkummar pry on each other with Kangana always being suspicious and trying to intrude in her neighbour, Rajkummar's life making his hackles rise.
Ever since its first look was released last March, Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut-starrer Mental Hai Kya has piqued the audience's curiosity, courtesy its offbeat treatment of the film's subject - mental illness. However, mid-day has learnt that the event has been put on hold as the title of the Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer remains a subject of contention.
Earlier, a source revealed to mid-day, "After the success of Manikarnika, Kangana wanted to space out her next film. Mental Hai Kya was coming exactly two months after Manikarnika's release, which implied that she would have to immediately dive into the film's promotions. She requested the makers for a breather as the period drama had taken a toll on her."
A source also revealed, "Since it is a dark comedy with elements of a thriller, sharp editing is paramount. That's why the makers have allotted over a month to the post-production, leaving them enough time to edit it to a taut thriller."
Mental Hai Kya is an intriguing thriller with doses of quirk which will encourage everyone to embrace and celebrate their individuality and distinctiveness. Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Shaailesh R Singh, Directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, Mental Hai Kya is all set to hit screens on July 26, 2019.
