After impressing the audience with their onscreen chemistry in Queen (2014), Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao are all set for their second collaboration. The duo is all set to enthrall the audience with Prakash Kovelamudi's upcoming black comedy, Mental Hai Kya. As per the latest reports, the release date of the film has been pushed from March 2019 to May 2019.
A report in Mid-day has stated that the Queen actress wanted a ‘breather’ between her recently released film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Mental Hai Kya.
"After the success of Manikarnika, Kangana wanted to space out her next film. 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," a source told mid-day.
The source also revealed that some portion of Mental Hai Kya are yet to be filmed as Kangana had reassigned her dates to complete the shooting for Manikarnika.
A source told mid-day, "Kangana had reassigned some of her dates to Manikarnika since she had to reshoot portions of the period drama. As a result, a part of the patchwork shoot is remaining. The makers, therefore, decided that it would be best to push the release to May. However, they are yet to zero in on a date."
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the film revolves around the social stigma attached to mental illness. Amyra Dastur, Jimmy Sheirgill and Satish Kaushik will also feature in the film.
