- Kangana says there's stigma attached to being different
- "High time we made individuality aspirational," she said
- Mental Hai Kya also stars Rajkummar Rao
The posters of Mental Hai Kya appear quirky at first but reflect a darker truth when analysed closely. Like in the fifth and the latest posters of the film, Kangana and Rajkummar's characters are causing self-hurt.

Of how her film deals with mental illness, Kangana said: "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."
Mental Hai Kya is Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao's second collaboration after Queen, which released in 2014.
