Kangana Ranaut is strong, opinionated and has no filter. She’s unapologetic about her unabashed honesty and that’s exactly why we love her. But we love her even more for the epic performances that she delivers on screen. The actress will be next seen in Balaji Pictures’ upcoming movie titled Mental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao.

The film deals with mental illness and hallucinations and Kangana is super kicked about her interesting role in it. In a recent interview with Mid-Day, she shared why she chose to do this role instantly after listening to the script.

She said:

The way my life unfolded in the past few years, I realized there was so much stigma attached to being different. ‘Mental’ or ‘psycho’ were the terms used to shame me, but these can’t be used casually as swear words. When this script came along, I knew I had to do it to break the stigma around it. High time we made individuality aspirational.

She also added:

We won’t show people as pitiable, sympathy-seeking characters. We’ll portray the issue with sensitivity. The film takes a stand against equating individuality with madness.

We cannot wait to watch the trailer of Mental Hai Kya, can you?
