Psychological Experts Question The Mental Poster

Mental Hai Kya, the  new rom-com featuring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao seems  to be getting more than its share of controversial attention, thanks  to medical experts who find the film’s approach to psychological  imbalances  extremely  unprofessional.

 Several tweets  objecting to the  film’s title  and  poster(showing Ranaut and Rao balancing  a  razorblade on the tip of their tongues)  have surfaced.

One  of  the tweets reads, “@SmritiSawhney Precisely the gripe I had even with the title #MentalHaiKya. The poster does not help the cause either. The layperson would not be able to differentiate between ‘mentally ill’ and ‘Mental’. Those with #mentalillness are often called ‘mental’ in a derogatory way.”

While the film’s producer Ekta Kapoor remained unavailable  for comment, a source close to the  project says the title may be changed. “Mental Hai Kya is  a half-joking  reference to  someone who does outrageous things. Kangana and  Rajkummar  play two individuals who are constantly walking talking and  dancing on  the  edge.”

Apparently the  producers  are  unsure  of  the content, as the release date  was postponed  from  April to June.

Incidentally the title  Mental  was to be used  by Salman Khan  but he  decided against  it.
