They were rather thrilled to see the film." It is also said that the trailer of the film will be launched in the upcoming week. Interestingly, a source told Mid-day that the meeting with CBFC went on for six hours despite Prasoon Joshi's absence and while the name has been changed, it has also been decided that several places with the usage of 'mental' will be muted.
For the unversed, Members of the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) had written a letter to the CBFC seeking a change in the title of Mental Hai Kya stating they find it derogatory and demeaning to the mentally ill people.
