The makers of Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao-starrer ‘Mental Hai Kya’ have been titillating us with the crazy posters of the film. The filming of the same has begun and we are now eagerly waiting to see more of these two Mental stars. But a recent report in DNA has bought a new twist to the story.

According to the report, the film was initially offered to Kareena Kapoor Khan. Apparently, the script of the film is five year old and Bebo had then said no to this film citing that the storyline is way ahead of its time.  A source has been quoted, “Bebo felt that the storyline was way ahead of its time. It was dark and explosive in many ways. It also had several bold scenes and nudity. Kareena politely refused the film and it was put on the back burner.” Apparently Ekta Kapoor (producer of ‘Mental Hai Kya’) wanted to cast Kareena and Emraan Hashmi in this film which was supposed to be titled ‘Badtameez Dil’.

But then, one of the Kangana’s fan clubs has counter attacked this story stating the opposite.

We wonder what’s true and what’s not true!

According to sources, the makers of Ranveer Singh-starrer ‘Simmba’ are on the lookout for their film’s leading lady which is directed by Rohit Shetty. The makers are quite confused over the female lead in the film opposite Ranveer Singh who will be seen playing cop for the first time. If sources are to be believed Ranveer Singh has recommended his alleged girlfriend Deepika’s name to director Rohit Shetty. Deepika post ‘Padmaavat’ is in the lookout for a light film and hence Ranveer suggested Deepika’s name to the director.
