‘Mental Hai Kya’ has been subject to the CBFC’s red tape after being asked to change the title, now called ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’, due to the multiple petitions and lawsuits filed by the Psychiatric Department. The production team has also been asked to re-record the theme song of the movie as confirmed by actress Kangana Ranaut, causing a two-week delay for the first trailer. The film addresses a sensitive topic of mental illness, covering a murder mystery where Ranaut plays an obsessive woman with a mental illness.
Ranaut confirmed this news to Pinkvilla, stating “Yes, it’s true. We respect the CBFC’s decision immensely because it’s a law governing body and they wanted us to remove the word mental from the film entirely. There was a song that was used as background music throughout the film which we called the Mental song. But now, the singers had to re-record the whole track. That’s also the reason why it took four-five days after the CBFC’s clean chit for us to launch the promo”.
‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ releases on 26th July 2019.
