Kareena Kapoor Khan was not the first choice for Mental Hai Kya, the makers clarify

Recently, there were reports that Kareena Kapoor Khan was the first choice for Mental Hai Kya. However, the makers of the film have denied all the rumors. The movie stars Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles.

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!"

After Heroine flopped, you think Kareena will be offered mental role or accept mental role? She likes Bajrangi, singham type roles, running around trees, looking pretty.

Kareena will get a movie “Gym hai kya?”

Yes makers offering her that role never existed just like nepotism doesn't exist

Damage Control!

Only kangana can do this role as she is naturally mental

She's the first choice for gym appearances only.

Kareena's PR should calm down. They even spread news that she was the first choice for Queen which makers denied later.

Kat spread the news she was offered veere di wedding, Deepika spread the news she is working with majidi, kangana spread that she was first choice for sultan. Stop it against kareena. I know you are a deepika fan. Kareena is 100 times better than deepika in looks and acting. I would love to watch kareena's 15 mins role in bb & SR than deepika in padmaavat amd bajirao. She is a plane boring actress.

Just because for me Kareena is a very overrated actress that doesn't make me Deepika's fan. I was bored watching Deepika in Padmavati and didn't like her acting and character in Bajirao but she was good in Piku and Tamasha. In terms of acting they both are equal. In some movies they are good in others they are bad. If you think that Kareena is better looking that's your opinion and that's fine. For me just fair skin and green eyes don't make anyone a beauty. I find Deepika with her soft features more beautiful than Katrina or Kareena who has manly face IMO but she looks good without make up.

Jobless Kareena at it again

Kareena spreading lies as usual

The makers issued a statement saying this isn't true

why would they take her,everyone knows how lazy she is, No one can take this risk of casting her, she is only good for side roles, or cameo roles..

Have you not seen her earlier movies she is not a new actress where she has done side roles and cameos. She lost interest only after getting married. She has done roles like Chameli, omkara,dev, kurbaan,heroine, yuva etc. She been here for 18 years. She is married and has a child and she is still very popular. She has talent but she doesnt use it to her full potential.

Pv post this.

Ya we are talking about present not past her priorities have changed

So what's your problem? Like you just said, HER priorities have changed.

You should see her old movies. Main prem ki deewani hoon, khushi, mujhse dosti karoge..she's usually very hyperactive. Chameli, Omkara and Jab we met are the only movies that are good. In a career spanning 18 years, there are only 3 memorable movies, where she plays an important role, very impressive!!

Completely agree!
