Known for being blunt with Bollywood industry, Kangana Ranaut claims that she is calming herself down as she grows in age.

Kangana Ranaut has been getting a great response after the trailer launch of Judgemental Hai Kya. In presence of producer Shailesh Singh, writer Kanika Dhillon and director Prakash Kovelamudi the trailer was launched in Mumbai.

Rains played spoilsport for actor Rajkummar Rao as Mumbai airport remained shut and the actor was stuck in Delhi. At the trailer launch, Kangana Ranaut took away the spotlight. Kangana Ranaut spoke to STARBIZ about the experience in shooting the film. Read the excerpts:

How did Judgemental Hai Kya come in your kitty? 

All the credit goes to the producer Shailesh Singh, he has been following up with me with the script since the past 3 years and I had denied working in a thriller. He narrated me half of the script and I realized that it's just not a thriller but a package of entertainment. I was never keen to work in thriller movies earlier but now here it is.

You had mentioned earlier that the writer Kanika Dhillon wrote the story keeping you in mind, did that help you to excel in performing on sets? 

When Kanika told me about the script being written keeping me in mind, at first I was confused as to what kind of madness she saw in me while writing the story. But I must say that the role was perfectly adapted by me.

Also, there was a phase where people termed me as a person with mental illness and me being on medication and later I had also stated that it's normal to suffer from mental disorders and be on medication. People should indeed come forward and treat their mental illness. I actually relate this film to my life.

Judgemental Hai Kya has been directed by Bollywood first timer Prakash Kovelamudi. How well did you gel with him on the sets?

Prakash is a very young director and has a very good way to express the story. Being a very professional director, he ensured that everything and every scene was taken care of. He is from a film family and he was never prejudiced about anything. The process was very normal like it was in the first film.

It is said that Kangana Ranaut is controversial, actors claim that she is a trouble maker for them. What is your take on it?

I have always tried to be very positive in life, people in the industry often expose themselves rather than me doing anything to them. I speak my mind out on various issues which are relevant for the country and the industry. I have faced a lot to be successful and it is not wrong to keep the opinions in front of the public.

How well did you take the name change of the film title? 

We, outsiders, are judged even when we walk and keeping them in mind, we have started making our own path. Many cases were filed against us with the censor board and we were informed that the title 'mental' has been banned recently. We were openly threatened to take the matter in the court.

CBFC was very delighted to see the movie and so we were very happy after we changed the title. It will not make any difference to the film considering that we have made the film with the right intentions and I am sure that the audience will enjoy the movie.
