With the release of ‘Mental Hai Kya’ starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao getting nearer, the launch of the trailer was expected today, however its event was cancelled.
According to PinkVilla, the film’s title continues to cause trouble for the film. A complaint was filed to the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Prasoon Joshi by The Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS). The title has been branded “discriminative, stigmatising, degrading and inhuman in projecting mental disorders and persons.”
A source told the portal, “The film has had its share of controversies. The doctors had opposed to the title. The makers wanted them to first watch the trailer and the film before jumping to conclusions. While many allege that the makers are disrespecting people suffering from mental illness, the reality is different.”
The source added, “The makers are still awaiting a censor certificate to come their way before they can proceed and showcase the trailer to the public. The major reason behind the delay is this only. The team was waiting for it to come till late evening today but had to finally call off their plans. Though the makers can release the trailer digitally without the requirement of a Censor certificate, whether they are indeed going to do that or wait for a new date to announce is something that we have to wait and watch.”
