A couple of days ago, we had reported that after the smashing success of ‘Queen’ (2014), National Award winning actors Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao might join hands together for a new film called ‘Mental Hai Kya’. Speculations turned out to be true as the makers unveiled the first look posters of the film featuring Ranaut and Rao earlier today.
To be directed by the South Indian filmmaker Prakash Kovelamudi, the son of veteran Telugu filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao, ‘Mental Hai Kya’ is being bankrolled by Ekta Kapoor and Karma Media.
Unveiling the first look posters of the movie, Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures wrote on its official Twitter handle, “It’s time to bring out the crazy in you… Because Sanity is overrated! Here’s presenting the first look of #MentalHaiKya starring #KanganaRanaut and @RajkummarRao @ektaravikapoor @pkovelamudi @KarmaFeatures @KanikaDhillon @RuchikaaKapoor.”
Talking about the film, Kangana said in an interview, “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.”
Earlier Ekta Kapoor said in a press release. “‘Mental Hai Kya’ celebrates the beauty in imperfections and in being different and shouts out, Sanity is overrated!”
‘Mental Hai Kya’ is a psychological thriller, written by screenplay writer Kanika. If all goes well, the film will mount the shooting floor later this month.
