Mumbai: Tthe makers of Mental Hai Kya announced the release date of their film as June 21 which is also when Kabir Singh is scheduled to release. The Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao-starrer Mental Hai Kya, which marks the Hindi directorial debut of Prakash Kovelamudi and was slated to clash with Rajkumar Gupta’s Arjun Kapoor-starrer India’s Most Wanted on May 24, has now been postponed by 4 weeks.
The film’s release date has been pushed several times. It was initially scheduled to be released on February 22. The date was then changed to March 29.
However, June 21 has also been booked for the Shahid Kapoor-Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh. This will now mean that the Queen actress will be taking on her Rangoon co-star. During the promotions of the Vishal Bhardwaj directorial, it was evident that Shahid and Kangana didn’t get along. If that equation still persists, it will be interesting to see whether the impending box office clash begins another war of words!
This essentially means that the two films will clash at the box office, while the business of one may well affect the other. Mental Hai Kya is directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, and features Amyra Dastur and Satish Kaushik in pivotal roles. Kabir Singh, on the other hand, features Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead. The film is the Hindi remake of Telugu superhit Arjun Reddy, which featured Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead roles.
Ranaut was last seen in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019), which she co-directed with Krish. Rao’s last release was Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2019).\
