The makers of Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘Mental Hai Kya’ release a statement on the film’s clash with Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’.
According to reports, the makers of Mental Hai Kya, which stars Kangana and Rajkummar Rao in the lead, have pushed the release of the film from June 21 to July 26. That is the same date when Hrithik’s Super 30 is scheduled to hit the screens. Mental Hai Kya, which was scheduled to release on June 21, will hit the screens on July 26, same as Super 30. Hrithik’s film was earlier scheduled to open on Republic Day (January 26). However, after makers of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, picked the same date for the release of Rani of Jhansi biopic, Super 30’s release was pushed to July 26. Pending post-production work was mentioned as the reason. Super 30 is based on the inspiring tale of math wizard from Bihar, Anand Kumar, who coached students from the backward sections of society to crack the elite IITs.
The shift in the release date is a decision taken after recommendations from the distributors, trade analysts and a top research team, keeping in mind the other releases a week before and after this date. We have thus been advised to shift the release of our movie to 26th July, purely for business prospects. This is a call taken by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji telefilms considering better prospects for the movie at the box office. Balaji Telefilms’ condemn the reports being circulated and would like to state that Mental Hai Kya will be releasing on 26th July to ensure better business growth and prospect for the film.”
