Mimi starring Kriti Sanon is set for release on Netflix on July 30. The family entertainer which revolves around the plot of surrogacy dropped its trailer on 13th July.
Mimi revolves around a small-town girl from Rajasthan, played by Kriti Sanon, who gets offered Rs 20 lakh to act as a surrogate for an American couple. The role of middleman is essayed by Pankaj Tripathi who convinces both parties.
However now, Mimi struggles to hide her pregnant belly from her parents and the society. The film touches upon the challenges of surrogacy and how society looks at it. But Mimi’s problems don’t stop here as the couple retracts from the deal and refuses to accept the child.
Mimi’s family thinks a pregnant unwedded daughter means it’s an illegitimate child and religious rivalry is added Mimi’s existing problems.
Speaking about Mimi, Kriti Sanon said, “It’s not preachy or serious. It’s not like you are going to watch a film on surrogacy and it’s going to be a documentary film. It’s a very entertaining film, filled with humour, and a lot of ups and downs. There’s a beautiful graph of the woman I am playing, Mimi, where she wants to be an actress.”
Mimi reunites Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, director Laxman Utekar and producer Dinesh Vijan after their hit romantic-comedy Luka Chuppi. It is also the latest collaboration between Dinesh Vijan and Kriti Sanon after films like Raabta, Luka Chuppi and Arjun Patiala. Fans also remember her collaboration with Pankaj Tripathi as father-daughter in Bareilly Ki Barfi.
