MUMBAI: Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut are coming together for a movie again and this one looks nothing like Queen! The two dynamic actors who have never done anything that is clichéd shared the first look of their upcoming film, So Mental Hai Kya, their second film together, which by its first look, appears to be quirky and unconventional.
Sharing his first look from the film, Rajkummar tweeted, “Crazy is the new normal. #MentalHaiKya with immensely talented #KanganaRanaut & my fav Ekta Kapoor. Let’s begin this mental ride.”

In a recent interview, Kangana had said about the film, “You’re never sure if this girl is hallucinating or what’s happening to her is for real, whether the guy is trying to trap her or she’s got him wrong.”
She was also excited about working with Rao again. “He is a star today while still being a brilliant actor, so I will have to be on my toes to ensure he doesn’t steal the show from right under my nose”, the actress joked.
About the movie, Ekta revealed, “Mental Hai Kya celebrates the beauty in imperfections and in being different and shouts out, Sanity is overrated! I’m thrilled to work with Kangana and Raj on this one.”
While Kangana has faced only disappointments at the box office recently (Rangoon, Simran), she is now busy shooting for Manikarnika inspired by the life of Jhansi ki Rani. Rajkummar has transformed into a star on the back of critically-acclaimed hits such as Newton and Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Mental Hai Kya is produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Prakash Kovelamudi. The release date has not been announced as yet.
