Kanika Dhillon is known for her work as a screenwriter in films including Ra.One, Manmarziyaan and Kedarnath. The celebrated writer is recognized and praised for her unique understanding of complex characters in her stories.
She is fierce and open talking about her scripts and characters saying, “I don’t censor myself. There is nothing that I would have changed in Manmarziyaan or Kedarnath. If I had to write it the second time, I would have done it the same way.”
Now the screenwriter has been lauded for coming up with yet another intriguing, electrifying and path breaking concept – Balaji Motion Pictures’ highly anticipated quirky thriller, Judgemental Hai Kya.
Talking about, Judgmental Hai Kya, which was earlier titled Mental Hai Kya, “Even though we have changed the title, I as a creator, was picking up a topic of mental health. If you look at it at a macro level, you have a mainstream Bollywood film talking about this issue and the narrative is that this is sensitive and this is not sensitive. These organisations play lakhs to celebrities to come and talk about these issues and enter the general consciousness of the public and the film which we are attempting to do is doing exactly that. Why would you bring us down? We are all on the same side of the fence.”
