New Delhi, News24 Bureau, June 28: Kangana Ranaut has always been in news for her upcoming project titled 'Mental Hai Kya'. As per the latest reports, Kangana Ranaut's film 'Mental Hai Kya' title will be modified a little on the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) order.
Kangana met media persons on Thursday and told that the film’s title will be ‘tweaked’ as per CBFC’s orders.
“Well there will be a mild, small change in the title of the film because they find it a bit too harsh. So we are more than happy to do that and other than that, there are absolutely no cuts. They were thrilled to see the film,” Kangana said.
It is worthy to mention here that a lot of question was raised against the film title from several medical associations and mental health organisations for its ‘derogatory’ title.
The Indian Medical Association, Indian Psychiatric Society and Deepika Padukone’s The Live Love Laugh Foundation, urged to the film’s makers to revise the title of the film as well as the content if it has any provocative dialogue or song, read a statement in April. “The title Mental Hai Kya? is clearly derogatory to people fighting with their mental maladies. It is sarcastic and ridicules persons in pain. The best term to describe the sufferers is a person with mental illness.”
“This term clearly communicates that mental illness is not a criterion to reject a person as a whole. The fact is that this sensational imagination is a perfect example of pathological risk-taking behaviour. But the title of the film loudly ridicules persons with mental illness which is not only unethical and inhuman but also illegal,” stated Santanu Sen, National President of IMA.
''In the meeting, the jury cleared the film with minor changes, almost no cuts, but the name will be changed and information will be released by the production house very soon. The film was also given the U/A certificate,'' stated a source.
