Balaji Telefilms’ Official Spokesperson Quote:
Given the sensitivity attached to the issue of mental health and our intention of not offending or hurting anyone’s sentiments, the makers have decided to change the title of the film Mental Hai Kya to ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’. Both Kangana and Rajkummar have outdone themselves in this thriller and we can’t wait for audiences to witness it on the big screen.
Producer Ekta Kapoor in her recent tweet clarifies that Mental Hai Kya was sensitive towards mental illness and did not mean to offend anyone.
She tweeted –
“The film in no way marginalises the mental health community and the title of our film doesn’t intend to disregard anyone’s sentiments. It is sensitive towards the issue of mental illness,”
