Kangana Ranaut, scriptwriter Kanika Dhillon and director Prakash Kovelamudi has launched the trailer of their upcoming film 'Judgementall hai Kya' in Mumbai. After launching the trailer, the actress spoke about the controversy surrounding the movie's original title 'Mental hai Kya'.

Kangana said, "Whenever anything is of Kangana Ranaut, lots of people have several problems. If we outsiders even breathe, there are people who have a problem with that. Keeping all that in mind, even we have learnt to make our way through it and ensure that no one has to face any inconvenience, even if it means that I have to face some inconvenience in return."

She also stated that the word "mental" was banned recently. She said, "There were several cases and threats against us. The South Indian original of Salman Khan's 'Kick' is called 'Mental'. But we were informed that these words were banned just a few weeks ago." However, the actor maintained that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was very supportive and had no issues with the film's consent.

Kangana said, "The Censor Board cooperated with us a lot. We have been given a U/A certificate. They said, ‘you’ve made a good film and we couldn’t find anything offensive in it.’ We have faith in our intentions." She also revealed how she herself has been shamed on many occasions.

"There was a phase in my life where people tried to openly shame me by saying that I have a mental illness. They said I am on medication and hence she is claiming things. I had answered that as well saying, ‘so what?’. Even though I am not on any medication, I would not have been embarrassed if I was."
