After the censor board reportedly raised objections , Balaji Telefilms have now said that it has decided to change the title of its upcoming film.
The Prakash Kovelamudi-directed thriller, starring Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut, has been at the receiving end for quite some time with many people calling the title – Mental Hai Kya as derogatory and insensitive to mentally-challenged persons.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the banner said the film’s title has been changed to Judgementall Hai Kya.
“Given the sensitivity attached to the issue of mental health and our intention of not offending or hurting anyone’s sentiments, the makers have decided to change the title of the film ‘Mental Hai Kya’ to ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’.
The representative added that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had raised minor objections to the film while giving it a U/A certificate and the producers have complied with them.
“With the CBFC clearance, the film is all set to release on July 26,” the spokesperson said.
Recently Kangana had confirmed that the film’s title will be changed.
“There will be a mild, small change in the title of the film. Because they find it a bit too harsh. And we are more than happy to do that. Other than that there are absolutely no cuts. They were rather thrilled to see the film,” Kangana had told reporters.
