The Hush Post: The first look of the Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Mental Hai Kya’ was released today.
Set amidst a dark background, the two actors are seen sporting quirky poses. Kangana Ranaut can be seen imitating a duck, with her eyes wide open while Rajkummar Rao is flipping us the bird.
Described as a story about a woman who could either be a murderer or a mentally ill person, the film dwells on issues relating to mental health, albeit in a light hearted way.
Sharing some details about her character in the movie, Kangana Ranaut said “You’re never sure if this girl is hallucinating or what’s happening to her is for real, whether the guy (Rajkummar Rao) is trying to trap her or she’s got him wrong”. Talking about her excitement on working with her co-star from Queen, she said “He is a star today while still being a brilliant actor, so I will have to be on my toes to ensure he doesn’t steal the show from right under my nose.”
Actor Rajkummar Rao tweeted: “Crazy is the new normal. #MentalHaiKya with immensely talented #KanganaRanaut & my fav @ektaravikapoor. Let’s begin this mental ride @ShaileshRSingh @balajimotionpic @RuchikaaKapoor @KarmaFeatures @pkovelamudi @KanikaDhillon.”
Ekta Kapoor was also thrilled about sharing details about her new venture. “Mental Hai Kya celebrates the beauty in imperfections and in being different and shouts out, Sanity is overrated! I’m thrilled to work with Kangana and Raj on this one,” she said.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the film is being directed by Prakash Kovelamudi and has been written by Kanika Dhillon. It will hit the screens later this month.
