Ekta Kapoor's Mental Hai Kya is one of the most anticipated movies of July. It brings together the talented duo from Queen, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao. Today, Balaji Motion Pictures released the motion poster that told us that the duo is here to set fire to perceptions. There has been some questions raised on whether the film is insensitive to the plight of mental health patients in the country. However, the makers have denied it totally. Ekta put out a disclaimer that read, "DISCLAIMER :D film in no way marginalises d mental health community & d title of our film doesn’t intend 2 disregard any1 sentiments. It is sensitive towards d issue of mental illness. A fictional thriller dat encourages you 2 celebrate Ur uniqueness & embrace Ur individual."
Well, the trailer launch of the film was supposed to happen on June 19. It seems the venue and dates of the actors were booked for the same. However, there has been no confirmation from the production house about the venue or timings of the event to the media so far. So, is Ekta's disclaimer a hint that Mental Hai Kya has run into some trouble with the CBFC. Will we hear about some cuts in the film? The film is written by Kanika Dhillon of Manmarziyaan and Kedarnath fame. South filmmaker and her husband, Prakash Kovelamudi is the director of the project.
The actors have assured time and again that the film in no way harms the interests or battles of mental health sufferers in India. We have to wait and watch for the CBFC certification for the film. Mental Hai Kya has been making a lot of news for various reasons. Firstly, it was the clash with Super 30 on July 26, which got averted after Hrithik Roshan decided to prepone his film. There were stories of how Kangana Ranaut interfered in the creative decision-making of the project. However, Prakash Kovelamudi totally denied those rumours terming them as baseless. He said, "We finished the first leg in Mumbai, the second in London, and the last one in Mumbai again. The final schedule was wrapped last month. That's all. All other conjecture is baseless."
