Mental Hai Kya, directed by Prakash Kovelamudi and starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao is going to release on 22 February 2019. A video with the two stars was also posted on the official Twitter page of Balaji Films, and it shows Kangana and Rajkummar, in their costumes and speaking to each other angrily. Kangana and Rajkummar were previously seen together in Queen, which became a breakout hit, a commerical success, a critically lauded story of one woman’s identity and resurrected Kangana’s career. She won a national award for it, and not then won for her performance in Tanu Weds Manu 2.
Rajkummar has also become one of the most lauded actors in the Bollywood movie industry, with multiple films each year, he has succeed in every role without being type cast. His performance in Newton, last year was considered one of the best of the year, and then, his quirky turn in Bareilly Ki Barfi established him as a leading man for the generation. He also got good notices for his act in Omerta, even as the movie itself was a commercial flop.
He is next going to be see opposite Sonam Kapoor, in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Kangana has already signed up for Ashwiny Iyer’s next movie about a female wrestler. She is also going to be seen in Manikarnika, the epic retelling of Rani Ki Jhansi, this year. Mental Hai Kya, according to producer, Ekta Kapoor, is a celebration of the madness within us. She has also, controversially, said that Sanity is overrated. However, when the two actors starring the project have so much talent, it is only true that they’re going to bring their empathy for the characters and rise above such superficial reading of the story. It is already one of the most anticipated movie of the next year.
