Amyra Dastur has joined the cast of Mental Hai Kya” alongside Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut. The 25-year-old actor will play Rao’s love interest in the upcoming psychological thriller, according to a press release.
Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut have started shooting for the film last week. “It is neither a comedy nor a psycho thriller. You know, we have really not made a film in this genre… So we were thinking how to categorise our film in one genre… So we released the poster of the film,” Ekta Kapoor said. The film amalgamates elements from two different genres. According to Ekta, at best it can be called a “thriller comedy”.
The movie will be directed by National Award-winner Prakash Kovelamudi and produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and Shaailesh R Singh’s Karma Media. The film, written by Kanika Dhillon, reunites Rao and Ranaut after the critically-acclaimed Queen in 2014.
She will also be seen in Leena Yadav’s Rajma Chawal and the Hindi remake of Telugu superhit Prasthanam opposite Ali Fazal, which also stars Sanjay Dutt. She was last seen in Kaalakandi.>
