Actress Kriti Sanon reveals that she is petrified and not sure if she will deliver a child in real life. She addressed the delivery scene the ‘toughest’ and expressed that she was nervous about it.
‘Mimi’ is the story of a carefree and feisty girl, portrayed by Kriti Sanon, who decides to become a surrogate mother in order to make money. The movie also stars Manoj Pahwa, Pankaj Tripathi and Supriya Pathak. ‘Mimi’ is helmed by Laxman Utekar and has announced its release on Jio Cinema and Netflix on July 30.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Kriti told, “I have seen a lot of real delivery videos on YouTube and all I can say is I am petrified to deliver a child in real life. I am not sure if I want to deliver or not in real life… The second half of the film is difficult for me. Especially when Mimi becomes a mother. Because this was a scene that I couldn’t relate to – a delivery means a lot of mental change and not just physical change. Gaining 15 kilos was definitely tough but the delivery scene in the film was the toughest. And I was very nervous about it”.
“Mostly in Hindi films we sometimes put comic relief in it and sometimes it is done in a subtle way. But our director Laxman Utekar wanted to film this in a realistic manner. He told me a man should experience the pain while seeing you. They should feel what a woman goes through while delivering and look at his wife and feel proud. That was the brief he shared”, she added.
Mimi is the remake of National Award-winning 2011 Marathi film ‘Mala Aai Vhhaychy!’ by Samroudhhi Porey. The trailer which got released on July 13 portrays the challenges of surrogacy and how society views it.
Kriti Sanon has films including Bhediya, Bachchan Pandey, Adipurush and Ganapath in the pipeline.
