Mental Hai Kya: Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao's film gets a new title

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer Mental Hai Kya is one of the most awaited films in Bollywood which is set to hit the screens on July 26. Directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, Mental Hai Kya  is a fictional thriller genre film. The makers of the film have decided to change the film's title as Jugementall Hai KyaFor the uninitiated, the movie landed into a controversy over its title.  


 The film faced troubles ever since the launch of the first look posters revealing the title. The Indian Medical Association (IMA), along with the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) and Deepika Padukone’s The Live Love Laugh Foundation, wrote letters to the film’s makers, CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, the Prime Minister’s office and former Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore seeking withdrawal of the teasers and a revision of the title.


According to reports, Kangana Ranaut recently met members of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and later told the media that she is ready to make necessary changes in her upcoming film, Mental Hai Kya. The latest development suggest that the makers have opted for the title, Judgemental Hai Kya. 


The makers have decided to change the title owing to the sensitivity attached to the issue of mental health and the fact that their intention is not to offend or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Also all mentions of “mental” in the film will also be muted.


The film produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures also stars Amyra Dastur and Vikrant Massey in supporting roles.
