On July 30th, the film Mimi world premiere will take place, on Jio Cinema and on Netflix. To live the protagonist – a surrogate mother – Kriti Sanon received from director Laxman Utekar the mission of gaining 33 pounds in two months. So she looked really pregnant, as an excerpt from the script asked for. “Laxman sir told me: ‘I wanna see your face and believe you’re pregnant'”, says the actress. Quite a challenge, as Kriti has great metabolism. Therefore, it is difficult to gain weight.
“I never thought I could do it, and there was a point when I didn’t want to see food, but when I saw how it translated on screen, it was all worth it”Kriti Sanon
Thanks to her great metabolism, Kriti has already returned to her usual weight, of course. As we can see in the photos she recently posted on social media.
The film Mimi also features Pankaj Tripathi, Supriya Pathak, Sai Tamhankar and Manoj Pahwa in the cast. The production is by Dinesh Vijan and the music is by AR Rahman.
