The first look posters of the movie were released in March last year when Kangana and Rajkummar started filming the movie. They generated a lot of buzz as the look of the two actors complemented the title of the film. The makers describe the film as a celebration of the “imperfections and the crazy within us”.
This is Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut’s second collaboration after 2013 hit drama Queen. Talking about Mental Hai Kya at an event, Rajkummar had said, “It’s an amazing script as it is a very quirky and different comedy. Kangana is such a powerhouse performer and we are coming together after Queen along with Ekta Kapoor (producer) so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Bankrolled by Karma Media and Entertainment and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures, the comedy thriller also stars Jimmy Shergill and Amyra Dastur in pivotal roles.
