Ekta Kapoor took her Twitter handle to reveal the first look of the movie Mental Hai Kya. The main actors of the movie are Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao. These two national award winner-actors will be united after four years. They were last seen together in Vikash Bahl directorial cult movie Queen in 2014. Queen is considered as the turning point of Ms. Ranaut’s career.
The Balaji Queen posted on her Twitter account; “It’s time to bring out the crazy in you.. Because Sanity is overrated! Here’s the first look of #MentalHaiKya starring #KanganaRanaut and @RajkummarRao. @balajimotionpic”

Rajkummar Rao also posted the same poster; “Crazy is the new normal. #MentalHaiKya with immensely talented #KanganaRanaut & my fav @ektaravikapoor. Let’s begin this mental ride @ShaileshRSingh @balajimotionpic @RuchikaaKapoor @KarmaFeatures @pkovelamudi @KanikaDhillon.”
The movie is produced by Balaji Motion Picture and directed by national award winning director Prakash Kovelamundi.
Earlier Kangana Ranaut told to media about her co-star Rao; “He is a star today while still being a brilliant actor, so I will have to be on my toes to ensure he doesn’t steal the show from right under my nose”. And when asked about her role in the movie, she added; “You’re never sure if this girl is hallucinating or what’s happening to her is for real, whether the guy (Rajkummar Rao) is trying to trap her or she’s got him wrong.”
Ekta Kapoor also told in a press interview; “Mental Hai Kya celebrates the beauty in imperfections and in being different and shouts out, Sanity is overrated! I’m thrilled to work with Kangana and Raj on this one.”
It is expected that the production house will start work on this month. They have also scheduled the shooting in London after the completion of basic production works. Currently, Kangana Ranawat is working on the period drama Manikarnika and Rajkummar Rao is busy in post-production work on his movie Omerta.
