Kangana Ranaut-Rajkummar Rao-starrer Mental Hai Kya gets a new name, Judgemental Hai Kya

Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming mystery-drama which stars Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao has been finally renamed from Mental Hai Kya to Judgemental Hai Kya after much controversy. There had been an uproar about the title of the film after the Indian Psychiatric Society raised an objection to the title. While Kangana kept defending the title, saying that the film was all about respecting every individual’s uniqueness, she was recently seen visiting the CBFC office for a meeting regarding the film.

In the meeting, the jury cleared the film with minor changes like muting the word ‘mental’ in some places and almost no cuts, but an order was passed to change the name of the film after all. The film was also given the U/A certificate.

Now as per the latest reports, the film has finally got its new name which is Judgemental Hai Kya. The movie’s producer, Ekta Kapoor, confirmed the news by retweeting a report by a publication. As per a Mid Day report, the meeting with the CBFC went on for six hours despite Prasoon Joshi’s absence. A spokesperson from Balaji confirmed the reports to Mid Day and also also informed that while the makers of the film had never intended to hurt anyone’s sentiments, the title had been changed as the topic was a sensitive one.

The film’s trailer will be out next week as per reports and the movie is slated for a July 26 release. Mental Hain Kya, besides Kangana and Rajkummar, also stars Amyra Dastur, Jimmy Shergill and Hrishita Bhatt in key roles. The film is directed by Prakash Kovelampudi and is produced by Ekta Kapoor. The story of the film is penned by Prakash’s wife Kanika Dhillon.
