New Delhi:

Kriti Sanon, who plays the role of a surrogate mother in her forthcoming project Mimi, shared a video on her Instagram profile, in which she shared her journey of becoming Mimi. "Gaining those kilosss," she captioned the video. In the video, Kriti talks about her body transformation. A segment of the film required her to gain over 15 kgs in order to look like a pregnant woman. "Laxman sir (the director Laxman Utekar) told me... "Mimi, I wanna see your face and believe that you are pregnant." Two months later when a new Kriti returned to the sets, she "didn't want to see food."

Sharing the video, Kriti Sanon captioned the post: "Being blessed with a good metabolism and normally eating burgers and pizzas in life, gaining 15kgs was a challenge... I never thought I could do it, and there was a point when I didn't wanna see food but when I saw how it translated on screen, it was all worth it."
