Kangana-Rajkummar-Starrer ‘Mental Hai Kya’ Pushed for May Release?
A new release date was announced for Prakash Kovalemudi’s Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao. The film, which was pushed from 22 February to 29 March, will now reportedly release in the month of May.
According to a report in Mid-Day, Kangana has requested for a breather after the release of Manikarnika.
“Mental Hai Kya was coming exactly two months after Manikarnika's release, which implied that she would have to immediately dive into the film's promotions. She requested the makers for a breather as the period drama had taken a toll on her," source to Mid-day.
The makers are yet to confirm the news. The film, directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, will see Rao reunite with his Queen co-star, Ranaut.
Mental... is being produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Karma media and entertainment.
"In a day and age where sanity is overrated, the film is a celebration of the crazy within us all. With Kangana and Rajkummar top-lining this film, we're set to ask audiences -Mental Hai Kya, in theatres on 22nd February," producer Ekta Kapoor had earlier said in a statement.
Karma's Shailesh R Singh added, "Mental... is a story about two beautifully chaotic characters and I am certain no one else could fit in the shoes except Kangana and Rajkumar.
"I am looking forward to their madness and excited to bring the two Mentals to the audiences."
Written by Kanika Dhillon, the film also stars Amyra Dastur.
