Last week, Bollywood fans were in for a treat when they got the first look at Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao.
Mental Hai Kya is being helmed by National Award winning director Prakash Kovelamudi. While the story is penned by Kanika Dhillon, Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and Shailesh R Singh's Karma Media are producing the movie.
The several posters which were shared by the makers have left everyone curious and intrigued to know more.
Recently, there were reports that Kareena was the first choice for Mental Hai Kya. As per a report in a leading daily, it was in 2013 when Ekta approached Kareena and Emraan Hashmi with the idea of Mental Hai Kya, which was initially titled Badtameez Dil. However, Kareena did not take up the role as she felt that the storyline was dark, explosive and way ahead of its time. It also had bold scenes and nudity and hence Kareena declined the offer. The project was then put on the backburner.
However, the makers of the film have denied all the rumors saying, "Mental Hai Kya’ is a completely different script, which was written only last year. Balaji heard the script just six months back, and green lit the project. Kangana Ranaut was always the first and only choice for the film, and we are happy that she said yes to it soon after hearing the first narration. Kangana and Rajkummar Rao have been our first choices for the role. The looks that we released last week have garnered fabulous reactions from the audiences and we're so excited to start shoot for this mental ride!"
