The poster and title of Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut's Mental Hai Kya has grabbed all the attention since its inception. The film was earlier scheduled to release in March but due to incompletion of patchwork, the makers postponed the release. Today, the producers revealed the new release date, which is June 21 along with a new poster featuring the lead cast. While we are happy that finally, we will witness this unique films, it has also turned out to be a double bonanza for movie buffs as Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh also will hit the screens on the same date.
Talking about Kabir Singh, it is the official remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda, which was also directed by Sandeep Vanga. Earlier in an interview with Indian Express, Shahid had said, "I usually don’t watch too many films in Telugu and it surprised me with its tonality, rawness, simplicity and the fact that it was so real and believable. The character is very fascinating for me as an actor because of the emotional arc… is very original. I loved it and Vijay Deverakonda, who played Arjun, did it so well." It is jointly produced by Cine1 Studios and T-Series.
On the other hand, Mental Hai Kya is directed by National award winning Telugu filmmaker, Prakash Kovelamudi, who is making his Bollywood debut with the film. Prakash is known for helming films like Bommalata and Anaganaga O Dheerudu. The film is written by Kanika Dhillon and is produced under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures. It features Rajkummar Rao, Kangana Ranaut and Amyra Dastur in key roles.
