20th April 2019

Kangana Ranaut has yet again landed in controversy, thankful this time it is nothing got to do with her personal life. Her next co-starring Rajkummar Rao titled 'Mental Hai Kya' has come under scanner of the Indian Psychiatric Society. Members of IPS are disappointed with the movie title and are asking to alter it. On this news, the makers of the flick, Balaji Motion Pictures have released their statement, that reads as below- 

"To whomsoever it may concern,

A day after the launch of the poster of the upcoming film Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao in the lead, a certain section of the society has taken offense to it. They have felt that the title of the movie is discriminating against people who are battling mental issues.
On the contrary, the makers of the film, believe that their movie - Mental Hai Kya will encourage people to embrace their individuality and distinctiveness. 

Produced by Ekta Kapoor's 'Balaji Motion Pictures', Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao marks the coming together of some of the most talented and responsible media personalities, who in no way intend to hurt anyone's sentiments. 

The makers would like to maintain that Mental Hai Kya is a fictional thriller genre feature film meant to entertain audiences and it does not offend, discriminate or disregard any person. In fact the film is a mainstream entertainer which makes a larger point."

'Mental hai Kya' is set to release on June 21, 2019.
