With little over a month to go for the July 26 release of Mental Hai Kya, the makers were eyeing to kick off the run-up with the trailer launch on Jun 19. 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. In a bid to find common ground, a meeting has been scheduled between producer Ekta Kapoor, members of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) in the city on June 19. On the agenda is a special screening of the trailer and a possible review of the title.
The popular phrase Love Thy Neighbour gets a twist this year with Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao playing nosy, annoying neighbours to each other. The stellar performers, 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. Their cynical approach towards each other results in the game of one-upmanship. And when two crazies collide, there is bound to be an explosion!

Director Prakash Kovelamudi elaborates ina chat with mid-day that, "Kangana and Rajkummar are quarrelling neighbours, pitted against each other in the film. Kangana's character is suspicious of the world around her and she is constantly inquisitive about her neighbour's life. Her probing nature provokes Rajkummar that results in them sharing squabbling chemistry in the film. Their bickering banter unfolds in an interesting way on the big screen and I am excited to showcase them in this light."
Twinkle Khanna was also spotted at the Mumbai airport. Twinkle wore a brown coat, white tee and denim for her outing.
