Even as ekta released the poster for her upcoming film mental hain kya, it has not gone down well with the bhais.

The Khan brothers, Salman and Sohail, are unhappy over how Ekta Kapoor has appropriated the film title ‘Mental’  from them, to suit her purposes. Earlier this week, Ekta Kapoor’s production house Balaji launched a film called Mental Hai Kya featuring Kangana Ranaut in the lead role.

This did not go down well with the brothers. A source close to the Khans says, “In fact, the Sohail-directed Jai Ho (2014) starring Salman was originally to be titled Mental.  For a long time, Kabir Khan was toying with the idea of naming Tubelight as Mental. The title Mental was with Salman and Sohail for the longest time. Now before they could use it, Ekta has gone and announced her film, Mental Hai Kya. That move has stolen the thunder from the Khans’ intended title. The least Ekta could’ve done was to ask Salman or Sohail — they would’ve been given it to her.”

When we asked Sohail about it, he replied saying, “No, we haven’t given Ekta the title, Mental. She hasn’t even asked us.”
