“Mental Hai Kya” poster faces criticism

Mental Hai Kya is an upcoming Hindi movie scheduled to be released on 21 Jun, 2019. The movie is directed by Prakash Kovelamudi and will feature Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut as lead characters. Mental Hai Kya, has landed into a controversy over its title. The makers had recently released a new poster showing Kangana and Rajkummar balancing a razor blade on their tongues. The makers have already released quite a few quirky posters showing the two lead actors in weird postures, playing with dangerous objects.

The Indian Psychiatry Society has objected to the title and has written to the filmmakers to remove it with immediate effect. They have asserted that the film’s title is discriminating and stigmatizing towards people facing mental health issues. The poster has drawn intense flak for exploiting mental health issues and for depicting the protagonists as actual, violent threats to themselves and society at large.
