The rumours surrounding Kangana Ranaut-starrer Mental Hai Kya are far from encouraging. Sources say that the actress has “taken charge” of the project, much in the way she had taken charge of her last film Mankarnika.
According to the source, “After Kangana saw the footage, she was not happy with the way her role had shaped up. She also felt that her co-star Rajkummar Rao stole many of the scenes. Kangana wanted those scenes to be re-shot.”
Sources say this is the reason why the film’s release has been postponed several times.
A source close to the project explains, “We must understand that Kangana is no longer satisfied with just being an actor on her sets. She wants to participate in every aspect of her film’s evolution. And why not? If it’s okay for Aamir Khan and Salman Khan to direct the director, why is it so shocking when Kangana does the same?”
All we can do is hope that Kangana’s co-star Rajkummar Rao agrees with this line of thought.
According to sources, Mental Hai Kya is now taking final shape according to the way its leading lady wants it to.
However, director Prakash Kovelamudi denied the rumours as he said, "We have shot Mental Hai Kya without any negativity. Both Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao have been fantastic to shoot with, they bring their own energy to the film. Working on Mental Hai Kya has been a collaborative process and it’s been an incredible journey. The shift in the release date of the film has been purely made from business perspective by the producers we are ready to hit screens on 26th July. Any other conjecture is baseless and untrue."
