Directed by Laxman Utekar, ‘Mimi’ is a remake of Samroudhhi Porey’s National Award-winning Marathi film ‘Mala Aai Vhhaychy!’ (2011). It is produced by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. In the movie, Kriti will be seen essaying the role of a young surrogate mother. For her role, Kriti had to put on 15 kilos. Actors Manoj Pahwa and Supriya Pathak are also a part of the film.
Laxman Utekar has written the movie’s story and screenplay along with Rohan Shankar, who has also penned the dialogues. ‘Mimi’ marks the reunion of several people involved in the film. It brings back together Kriti, Pankaj, director Laxman Utekar and producer Dinesh Vijan after their hit romantic-comedy ‘Luka Chuppi’. The film also reunites Kriti and Pankaj after ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’.
‘Mimi’ is the latest movie in the long list of collaborations between Dinesh and Kriti that includes ‘Raabta’, ‘Luka Chuppi’ and ‘Arjun Patiala’. Kriti also made a special appearance in Dinesh’s successful 2019 horror-comedy ‘Stree’. Apart from ‘Mimi’, Kriti has an interesting lineup of movies in her kitty including ‘Bhediya’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Adipurush’ and ‘Ganapath’.
