On World Mental Health Day, Kangana Ranaut urged her followers to watch her film ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ to spread awareness.

Taking to the microblogging website, the actress also seemed to take a dig at Deepika Padukone, claiming that her film “was dragged to the court by those who run depression ki dukan.”

‘Judgementall’ Hai Kya was initially titled ‘Mental Hai Kya’, which was deemed insensitive, forcing the makers to change it.

Kangana tweeted: “The film that we made for Mental Health awareness was dragged to the court by those who run depression ki dukan, after media ban, name of the film was changed just before the release causing marketing complications but it’s a good film, do watch it today #WorldMentalHealthDay.”

‘Depression ka dhanda’ and ‘depression ki dukan’ are phrases Kangana has used against actor Deepika Padukone in the past.

Deepika, a vocal advocate of mental health awareness, also runs the Live Love Laugh foundation.

Commenting on Mental Hai Kya, TLLL foundation in a series of tweets had stated, “It is time we put an end to the use of words, imagery and/or the portrayal of persons with mental illness in a way that reinforces stereotypes. Many millions who suffer with mental illness in India already face tremendous stigma. Therefore,it is extremely important to be responsible and sensitive towards the needs of those suffering.”
