B-town was recently buzzing with the news that ‘Queen’ (2014) actress Kangana Ranaut has signed a psychological thriller to be helmed by Tollywood filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao’s son Prakash Kovelamudi. Besides Kangana Ranaut, Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao’s name was also being associated with the flick. Now we have learnt that the project is indeed happening and the makers have tentatively titled it as ‘Mental Hai Kya?’
In a recent interaction, when Kangana was asked about her next film, she said, “My next film is ‘Mental Hai Kya’, which is written by a woman screenplay writer, Kanika. The story is about a woman who could be a murderer or a mentally ill person. It talks about mental health, but also has light-heartedness to it.”
A couple of week ago, a source had said about the project, “It’s a fast-paced thriller revolving around the two protagonists. Set inLondon and Mumbai, it is expected to roll in March. Raj recently heard the script and immediately came on board. Both Kangana and he are looking forward to working with each other once again.”
Meanwhile, Kangana is currently busy with her period film, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’, which is based on the life of freedom fighter Rani Laxmibai. Earlier scheduled to release in April, the movie is now expected to hot the theatre in the second half of the year as a lot of post production work is still pending.
