Kriti Sanon Shares Poster of ‘Mimi’, a Film Based on Surrogacy
It will also be starring Pankaj Tripathi, who will be collaborating with Sanon after their film Luka Chuppi.
After her much appreciated performances in films like Bareilley ki Barfi and Luka Chuppi, Kriti Sanon has us waiting for her next project. In an Instagram post, she shared the first poster of her upcoming movie ‘Mimi’, based on the Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychy. The film will revolve around the issue of surrogacy.
With the post she asked her audiences to ‘get ready for a journey like never before’, calling it a ‘special’ film.
Speaking to Filmfare, the actor said,
“My film is directed by Luka Chuppi director Laxman Utekar and I love working with him. The film is not at all preachy, rather it has a subtle message. This is the first time that I will be carrying the film on my shoulders as the protagonist is a woman.”
This is also the first time that she will be playing a mother: “It is not at all possible to understand the emotions of a mother if you aren’t one. This is a completely new territory for me and I am quite nervous.”
The film will be directed by Laxman Utekar and produced by Maddock Films and Jio Studios. It will also be starring Pankaj Tripathi, who will be collaborating with Sanon after their film Luka Chuppi.
Bollywood films like Doosri Dulhan, Filhaal, Chori Chori Chupke Cupke and I am Afia, among others, have dealt with the issue of surrogacy before.
