After Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, rumour mills were abuzz that Kangana Ranaut will now don director’s hat once again and will direct her upcoming flick Mental Hai Kya which also stars Rajkummar Rao in the lead role. A source close had revealed to Asian Age that the actress has “taken charge” of the project, much in the way she had taken charge of her last film Mankarnika.

A source close to the development had told Asian Age, “After Kangana saw the footage, she was not happy with the way her role had shaped up. She also felt that her co-star Rajkummar Rao stole many of the scenes. Kangana wanted those scenes to be re-shot. We must understand that Kangana is no longer satisfied with just being an actor on her sets. She wants to participate in every aspect of her film’s evolution. And why not? If it’s okay for Aamir Khan and Salman Khan to direct the director, why is it so shocking when Kangana does the same?”


Now director Prakash Kovelamudi has rubbished all the rumours of Kangana directing Mental Hai Kya. Clearing the air about it, Prakash told Hindustan Times, “We have shot Mental Hai Kya without any negativity. Both Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao have been fantastic to shoot with, they bring their own energy to the film. Working on Mental Hai Kya has been a collaborative process and it’s been an incredible journey. The shift in the release date of the film has been purely made from business perspective by the producers. we are ready to hit screens on 26th July. Any other conjecture is baseless and untrue.”
