Bollywood films invariably become a soft target and it is happening time and again! And the role of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is also quite a peculiar one. Now, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao‘s ‘Mental Hai Kya’ has found itself in a logjam with the censor board. The trailer of ‘Mental Hai Kya’ has also been delayed.

As per a report in Mid-Day, a meeting will be held today in Mumbai between producer Ekta Kapoor and representatives from the CBFC and the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS). A special screening for the trailer and a review of the film’s title will be proposed.

CBFC counsel Kshitij Amin said that ‘Mental Hai Kya’ producers had submitted the trailer to CBFC on 11 June. “The governing body has decided to call for a meeting between the petitioner and the applicant. They will watch the trailer and decide further course of action. Since the discussion is likely to take place today, the court has adjourned the matter to next week,” he told Mid-Day.

The IPS had filed a PIL in the Gujarat High Court, claiming that the movie’s title is “stigmatising, degrading and inhuman in projecting mental disorders and persons who suffer from mental disorders.” And he has demanded an immediate change of the title.

As of now, ‘Mental Hai Kya’ is slated to release on July 26, 2019. Stay tuned to Bollywood Bubble for all the latest news and updates.
