Because Sanity is overrated!"[10]

The following day, March 6, another two posters for the film were released, with leads Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut posing in "quirky" and dangerous positions- a knife-wielding Ranaut in a water-fulled bathtub surrounded by electronic gadgets at its edge, and Rao holding a butcher knife and cutting an apple, with blood seeping from his hand.[11]
