As influencers we need to break notions attached to mental health: Kangana Ranaut


“Mental Hai Kya” star Kangana Ranaut believes as a celebrity it is her responsibility to work towards breaking the stigma attached to mental health. When asked about her views on the way Hindi film industry treats the topicon-screen, Kangana said, “I realised there was so much stigma attached to being different. So, I thought we as influencers need to stand-up and break these notions and address this subject.”

“Mental Hai Kya” is Kangana’s second collaboration with Rajkummar Rao after “Queen”. The actor is full of praise for her co-star, who has been enjoying a great run in Bollywood with back-to-back projects. He is a star today. He is a brilliant actor and a very hardworking co-star. I have seen his work and it was definitely a great experience,” she said.

The film also stars Amyra Dastur and Jimmy Sheirgill. It will release on February 22. Besides this, she will be seen in “Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi”, set to release of January 26.

“I believe in giving 100 per cent to all the movies I am associated with and I will continue to take up roles which appeal to me, and that will make a difference to the audience,” said Kangana.
